North Lanarkshire Primary Healthcare Arts Strategy

Posted on: January 6th, 2016 by Dan Jones No Comments

Our sculpture in the new Kilsyth Health Centre features as part of the portfolio of projects making up the Arts Strategy for North Lanarkshire NHS. The collected projects exemplify the ways in which properly engaged public art projects can positively enhance and augment the day to day experiences for staff, patients and visitors to these new healthcare buildings.

“…The courtyard artwork in particular, has been very well received and is testimony not only to the creativity and originality of the artists involved, but also the willingness of all the groups and individuals who responded to NHS Lanarkshire’s and the artists’ calls for the public’s thoughts and opinions on how they envisaged the artwork taking shape.

In many ways the artwork is a tangible example of the partnership between public and private agencies, local communities and patients and the public.”
