WHAT and Permanent TSB believe the artworks on display in University Hospital Waterford make it a better place for everyone and we would like you to have a say in choosing them. Go along to the corridor leading to the Outpatients Dept and vote for the artist whose work you would like to see in an exhibition later in the year. Voting closes on Friday 30 March.
WHAT, an arts and health organisation based at University Hospital Waterford, curates a lively programme of temporary exhibitions which offer patients, staff and visitors opportunities to access diverse contemporary art. The exhibitions also prompt conversations between patients, staff members and visitors that are beyond the medical context. According to one patient of University Hospital Waterford, ‘While struggling with illness and medication, I found the art in the corridors was a healing influence and these dashes of creativity supported me.’
