Art with a Bigger Purpose – Launch event at the University Children’s Hospital, Ljubljana

Over a year of intense preparation that involved selecting the artists, artist workshops and residences, artistic creation, documenting, and work with partners, has resulted in colourful and meaningful works of visual art that now dress the entrance area, hallway, waiting room, playrooms, and the courtyard of the Paediatric clinic, spanning a total area of 360 square meters.

The project features works by the artists Črtomir Just of Slovenia, Rafael Mayani of Mexico, Ruth Hengeveld of the Netherlands, and Fatheat & Bea Pántya of Hungary.

Realisation of the project ‘Art with a Bigger Purpose’ was provided in coordination and support by six partners –
The Jochnick Foundation, Oriflame, Volvo, A1 Slovenia, Philips, Lara.
