The Artist in Residence Program.
Through the generosity of our donors, we were able to fund educational materials and therapeutic experiences for patients and their families. Through creative workshops, cooking classes, respite programs, play areas and outdoor spaces, we fund happiness for the children we support.
A hospital can be a daunting environment for children and young people. Being away from the familiarity of home and family can also be distressing for kids.
The Artist in Residence Program at Perth Children’s Hospital runs a variety of creative workshops, including clay animation, yarning, textile printing, sculpture, storytelling and illustration. This program builds a creative escape for children that can reduce stress and anxiety and shorten their length of stay in Hospital.
