Nordic Art Initiative – Art with a Bigger Purpose

A hospital is not a fun place for anyone, especially not for kids. Regardless, some children spend a considerable amount of time trapped behind hospital walls.

Art with a Bigger Purpose is the specific project name for the installation of art works in paediatric clinics. It encompasses a working model that focuses on implementing art-based changes to this clinical setting with the aim of seeing a reduction in fear and anxiety amongst children visiting hospitals. The main goal is to improve a child’s hospital experience by installing art works in this normally sterile environment. In this way, we aim to foster a positive, welcoming environment for children, relatives and staff alike.
