Aashiyana Arts Heartlands NHS Trust Speight of the Art Foundation
Heartlands NHS Trust and Speight of the Art
Are proud to anounce a joint venture project that will run from November 2012 to July 2013.
There will be a 33 week run encompasing 66 on ward events at Heartlands Hospital, Bordesley Green and 8 local Schools. We have applied for and recieved financial help from the Arts Council England, and The William Adlington Cadbury Charitable Trust.
This will help us ensure we bring the benefits of the arts to children on the wards, and also to allow children who may need the hospitals services in the future, to visit the hospital, therefore demistifying the admissions process and removing some of the fears or uncertainties they may have about going to hospital for treatment. More than a dozen of our dedicated artist will be involved, and there will be a gala presentation evening with a prize giving ceremony for approx 20 catergories, hosted by a national TV figure.
