Artist in residence programme

The artist in residence programme invites established artists to spend a length of time with particular patient groups. The residency gives artists the chance to develop their work whilst offering patients the opportunity to engage in artistic projects. Previous artists have included Anne Harild and Zarina Bhimji.
