Dorset County Hospital

Arts in Hospital

Arts in Hospital is a small, charitable organisation based at Dorset County Hospital. We aim to enhance the healing environment, raise patients' spirits and give pleasure to all who are concerned with their welfare.

Our core objectives are to support patients and staff through therapeutic art projects that have medical and social benefit, engage the wider community in creative projects based on health and well-being outcomes, plus programme temporary exhibitions and maintain a permanent collection of life affirming artwork shown throughout the hospital and satellite facilities to create a healing environment.

Due to Covid -19 access to our collection and temporary exhibitions has become much more limited, we aim to remedy this by going digital! In this way we are able to bring you our latest exhibitions and gradually add more of our permanent collection. We are currently reliant on the photographs we have, many are not of a good enough quality to use so we will be raising funds for a photographer to come in.
