Imagine being in hospital for an extended period of time. Or, knowing that due to your condition, you may never leave hospital again.
Sounds grim, right? But it doesn’t have to be.
Enter: Richard Wilmore and Hearts Need Art. This not-for-profit organisation brings creatives into hospitals to share their craft with patients, caregivers and staff. This program creates moments of joy, self-expression, and connection, in an otherwise sombre setting.
Richard joined me on Creativity: Uncovered to share the benefits of creativity in healthcare, how the organisation started and their plans to expand.
