COVID-19 has changed all our lives. For Paintings in Hospitals, the pandemic has meant a complete change to the way we work. To protect vulnerable patients from the virus, we have been unable to reach out to them in person to co-create exhibitions and provide arts workshops as we usually would. But these isolated people and the tireless staff caring for them are exactly who need Paintings in Hospitals’ support at this incredibly difficult time.

We recently launched new digital and remote arts projects for people to experience while in isolation, such as our Healthcare Heroes virtual exhibition with Google Arts & Culture and our free Creative Care Homes activity guide. But we need to do more and need to raise further funds to ensure our charity's future.

With money raised through the Art for Health Auction, we will be able to continue our work in 2021 and reach many more patients and carers in new, safe ways. In what can be dull, dark, and lonely times, we will bring to them colour, connection, and inspiration.
