The Waterford Healing Arts Trust (WHAT) invites artists to apply for its 2013 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. The closing date for applications is Wednesday, 13 March 2013 at 2pm.
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
- offering opportunities to emerging artists for professional development within a healthcare context.
