Waterford Healing Arts Trust (WHAT) is Ireland’s leading arts and health programme. Established in 1993, we bring arts experiences to the bedsides of patients at University Hospital Waterford and other healthcare settings. We believe that the arts contribute to the wellbeing and vitality of society and that engaging with the arts stimulates our sense of identity and creativity.

WHAT supports the development of arts and health in Ireland and manages www.artsandhealth.ie, a national website.
