About the program

Bathurst and the Central West is unique, with its own strong cultural identity.

Our project will include a comprehensive Arts in Health cultural strategy to create a welcoming, vibrant hospital which promotes health and well-being, and reflects its local community.

We'll have more information soon, but if you can't wait, check out this article about how art in health aims to improve patient, staff and carer experience in health services through artistic engagement: How does art fit into hospitals.
