Enlivening the space – creative changes to the clinical environment

 ‘The art and music provided the much needed focus and stimulation my father needed in the last few weeks of his life. We would like to thank you for the warmth created in a hospital setting which acknowledged the individual and made their days more bearable’ Family member

This is a project by Inscape Tas Incorporated, a new Hobart based not- for- profit organisation that supports artists and musicians to work in health care and other non-art settings with the aim of promoting a wider sense of wellbeing for all people who provide or receive the services in these settings.

 

Art Music Story – a partnership between the Royal Hobart Hospital and Inscape Tas.
