Art at the Heart of the RUH was established in 2000 under the umbrella RUH Charitable Funds: Charity Number 1058323.

Art at the Heart presents a high quality programme of arts within the RUH for the benefit of patients, staff and visitors.

The programme covers the visual arts, music and literature through exhibitions, performances and readings, together with educational workshops for patients and staff.

We also improve the healing environment through innovative design ideas for the interior and exterior spaces of the hospital, art acquisitions and commissions, and an ambitious temporary exhibitions programme which covers the ground floor central and the north areas of the hospital.

They will also have the satisfaction of helping the thousands of outpatients, inpatients, staff and many visitors to the RUH to benefit from the healing and environmental improvements that the arts bring to the busy wards and corridors of the hospital.

Art at the Heart welcomes new supporters who would like to be involved in the arts programme and to help fund its future development plans. Supporters will receive benefits such as invitations to launch events and special talks.
