For health service users

WHAT aims to enrich the lives of those receiving and providing healthcare through the arts. Our work can be enjoyed through active participation or as an audience member or art viewer. Our art-making and art participation programmes such as Art Kart, Art in Renal Dialysis, Artist in Residence, Iontas arts and mental health programme and Open Gallery provide creative opportunities for a range of health service users.

Our exhibitions, art collection, art commissions and live music transform University Hospital Waterford into a stimulating space and provide access to contemporary arts and design.

All our programmes are designed to respond to the needs of health service users and to suit the context.
