A fantastic showcase of the RUH Staff’s artistic talents will be on display for the RUH Staff and Volunteer Exhibition 2017. Staff members from a range of departments – Maternity, Estates, Pathology, Therapies and ward volunteers to name a few, are taking part by exhibiting mediums such as photography, painting and mixed media.

With over 4,800 staff and volunteers at the RUH there is sure to be a great pool of artistic talent waiting to be revealed. Art at the Heart would like to support these abilities by encouraging staff and volunteers to share their work with other staff and members of the public.

A call for interest was made earlier in the year to see how many staff members and volunteers would like to take part and by receiving a successful response, we are thrilled to be running the RUH Staff and Volunteer Exhibition for a third time.

You can view the range of artworks we have on display in the Staff & Volunteer Exhibition 2017 in our flickr gallery by clicking on the image ‘White Rhinoceros’ by Hannah Rieder below:

Creative Perspectives is a peer led visual arts creative group in Bath. Successful fundraising through Quartet Community Foundation and a partnership with Creativity Works and Bath Museums initially enabled the group to plan for 6 weeks of creative activity during the summer period 2015.

By September 2015 the team had grown to 12 people who were all keen to continue to keep the group going. The group has been meeting weekly at Bath Artists Studios for over a year now; a fantastic venue to meet and create amongst an already vibrant and talented artistic community.

All members help plan further sessions, creative activities, fundraising and new ideas are always welcome.

Recently members from the group took part in a research project in conjunction with Creativity Works and Bath University to evidence the value of creativity and its contribution to well-being.

Creative Perspectives offers an opportunity to meet others, learn and share creative ideas, gain confidence in a safe and friendly environment and contribute to the planning and continuation of Creative Perspectives.

Creative Perspectives Workshop

The group is planned and run by members for its members with occasional facilitation by visiting artists. It is suitable for those who would like to support their well-being through creativity. This is not a drop in group but if you are interested in becoming a member and contributing to its continuation please contact: Philippa@creativityworks.org.uk – 01761 438852
