Arts for Health Programme

The Arts for Health programme (est. 1998) at the Singapore General Hospital is the earliest art in hospital initiative in Singapore. The programme worked with art organisations, artists and volunteers to develop art activities for patients, visitors and staff. Activities include: regular music, theatre and dance performances (Arts Concerts); regular art workshops and collaborative were organized by artists, volunteers and art therapists to create works for display around the hospital (Arts Expressions). Art Expressions also helped create awareness for patient support groups and for patients to celebrate their quest in coping with their illness. SGH was also the first hospital to host the annual Singapore Arts Festival (circa 2005), supporting its month-long fringe events in the hospital (ArtsFest@SGH). Arts For Health also supported development of the Music and Creative Therapy unit, which continues to offer a range of music therapy for rehabilitation, development for hearing impaired children at the hospital.
