GOSH Arts is the arts programme at Great Ormond Street Hospital. Our participatory programme, art commissions and temporary exhibitions inspire creativity, create welcoming environments, and offer meaningful cultural opportunities across a variety of art forms for patients, families and staff.
Our work plays an essential role in enhancing the hospital experience at GOSH. Engaging with visiting artists and having art integrated into our buildings helps to create more relaxed spaces, less clinical environments and contributes to reducing stress and anxiety for our visitors and staff.
In addition to being responsive to Great Ormond Street Hospital and its users, GOSH Arts strives to be responsive to our wider context and the world around us. GOSH is the first hospital in London to declare a climate emergency and is making determined steps to change practices and behaviours that will make a positive impact on the environment.
In parallel, GOSH Arts is highlighting the importance of nature and its positive impact on health and wellbeing by dedicating our 2021 programme to the theme of biophilia. Through our programming and commissions, we will seek to find new innovative ways to bring nature into the hospital setting.

My Fantastic Place celebrates nature connection through creativity and is a project with Imprint and GOSH Arts. Supported with an Arts Council England National Lottery grant.
