Saolta Arts
For ten years, as Galway University Hospitals Arts Trust, we provided an Arts and Health programme to promote wellbeing and improve the hospital experience at Galway’s public hospitals. As Saolta Arts, we shall continue to nurture the discovery and development of creative potential, encourage new ways of seeing, and stimulate fresh dialogue across five counties – making the hospital a place of possibilities. Saolta Arts runs the west of Ireland’s leading Arts and Health programme as a means of improving the hospital experience for patients, staff and visitors. We provide a multi-disciplinary programme of events and activities, including exhibitions, participative workshops, music, theatre and poetry. Saolta Arts CLG is a registered Charity (CHY17964). Our programme is supported by the Arts Council, Galway City Council, Galway County Council and fundraising activities.
