Our small part time team is managed by an Arts Committee consisting of patient and staff representatives, arts experts and enthusiasts which meets quarterly to support and guide the team.
We have been able with understanding and support from colleagues, staff, patients and carers to embed ourselves in the working life of Musgrove Park Hospital, helping to shape high quality interior and exterior spaces within the hospital. Each year we run music performances, exhibitions and offer a broad range of opportunities for patients and staff to get involved in creative activities that build self esteem, lift the spirits and reduce stress. We believe we have developed Somerset’s largest accessible contemporary art collection. Over 500 artworks are seen every day, some art has been bought but much of it is loaned to us.
Next time you are in the hospital why not take a look at some of the works on display.
