The Waterford Healing Arts Trust (WHAT) invites artists to apply for its 2012 Artist-in-Residence programme. The successful artist will produce a body of work for exhibition in Waterford Regional Hospital and engage part of the patient population of the hospital in a collaborative arts project.

WHAT has been running an Artist in Residence programme since 1994 as a means of:

  • engaging hospital users in contemporary art practice
  • enhancing the environment of Waterford Regional Hospital via visual arts
  • and offering opportunities to emerging artists for professional development within a healthcare context


The successful artist will receive a studio space for a six month period in the WHAT Centre for Arts and Health, a small bursary and materials budget and an opportunity for a solo exhibition.

The closing date for applications is Wednesday, 15th February 2012. For further details and application requirements please contact WHAT on 051 842664 or e-mail
