About

Artroom is a patient centred arts project run by Grampian Hospitals Art Trust. Professional artists work with patients in wards across various NHS Grampian locations and are integral to the project’s success. They work on sites including Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, Royal Cornhill Hospital, Woodend Hospital and Royal Aberdeen Children’s Hospital. The artists act as guides and sources of information, providing bespoke materials for each person on their creative journey.

Participation in artistic activity improves wellbeing and confidence, especially for those who may be in hospital for a long time. The welcome relief from their medical condition that Artroom provides is invaluable. Families and visitors are encouraged to attend Artroom too, often sparking new conversations and collaborative work. The best part of the project for the artists is to see what people can create when given the time and freedom to do so.

It is important that each artist working with Grampian Hospitals Art Trust on the Artroom project is supported within their own professional practice. This exhibition highlights the range and depth of work by the artists who are employed to deliver the Artroom project.
