The Arts & Health Hub is a not-for-profit organisation that supports artists and cultural producers (curators etc) interested in or working in the field of arts and health.
Our 3 principles are to connect with one another, learn from one another and share with one another. The Hub is artist led and primarily for artists, although we welcome people from other backgrounds such as health and care professionals. We are inclusive. Our organisation is open to artists from all backgrounds, communities, experiences and qualifications. No one is better than the other.
The Hub has a base in London but also works online and with partner organisations to support artists across the UK.
How do we do that?
Commissioning & Partnerships.
Founded in 2015, we’ve delivered over 80 events and projects that champion the work of artists.
The Hub was founded by artist Daniel Regan and was born out of a need to connect with likeminded artists. Since 2015 we have directly supported artists and cultural producers to crystallise creative visions, troubleshoot sector problems, commission new works and provide practical and emotional support.
