Artlink places artists and performers within wards and departments of 4 hospitals across the Lothians and provides a regular programme of exhibitions...Western General Hospital, St John's Hospital, Royal Edinburgh Hospital and Edinburgh Royal Infirmary.

We use the interests of patients and staff to inform an ever changing programme of events and workshops which supported by visual artists, performers, writers, poets, singers and musicians.

We work in collaboration with the artists, patients, relatives, hospital staff and the local community to make positive changes within hospital and their grounds.

The Ward Activities programme is a direct response to the expressed needs and interests of patients and staff.

• Each activity lasts an hour
• We work across different wards in each hospital
• Activities happen at bedsides, in communal areas of the wards and in pubic spaces
• It is a constantly changing programme

The programme works across both performing and visual arts. The programme ranges from music, singing, songwriting, magic, comedy, craft and story telling.
