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