New Arts and Health Consortium for Western Australia

18 July 2016

Western Australia have begun their response to the National Arts and Health Framework by creating an Arts and Health Consortium Reference Group and setting up a first project focusing on current and future arts and health collaborations in WA hospitals.

The Consortium members are thrilled that the Director General of Health, the Director General of Culture and the Arts, the Group CEO of SJGHC and the LotteryWest Board have co-funded this critical research.

The project consultants, Kim Gibson and Liesbeth Goedhart will map what’s already happening in our WA Hospitals in order to acknowledge and showcase the many arts and health collaborations that occur within our hospitals. They will also recommend further innovative arts and health collaborations and projects that will contribute to arts and health priorities and that are most likely to make a difference to the health and wellbeing of patients, their families and visitors and staff in hospitals.
