Fresh Art@ project scoops an award

Fresh Art@ awardOur successful and innovative creative arts project called Fresh Art@ has won an award.

The therapeutic project, piloted in Bath last year, is designed to engage service users and their family and friends in developing creative art works to make our wards and buildings more vibrant and appealing.

The Trust received a highly commended award from Arts and Health Southwest for the Fresh Art@ project, masterminded by Nathaniel Burgess.

Old faded pictures and reproduction prints at Bath NHS House were replaced with fresh, original and stimulating works of art that promoted wellbeing, inspiration and conservation between service users and staff. The art work was so good it was even displayed at the Fringe Arts Festival in Bath.

Nathaniel said "This award is a huge accomplishment for everyone involved in running the project. Fresh Art@ supports people to develop new creative transferable skills and gives them a sense of pride by exhibiting their work."

The project is a partnership between Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust, Creativity Works, Sirona Care & Health and Bath Museums.
