Brightening patient journeys

What we do

Waterford Healing Arts supports people in hospital and other healthcare settings, and people living in the community, to make and experience the arts – music, visual art, creative writing, storytelling.  In this way, we seek to promote creativity, connection and discovery, to reduce isolation, anxiety and stress, and to remember that beauty still exists, even during a difficult time.

How to help

Our work lifts spirits, reduces isolation and brings light and hope at what can be a difficult time in a person’s life. Would you like to support patients and residents in healthcare settings to experience these benefits?
