Zest arts in health launched in July 2008 with a vision to take a patient focused approach to arts in health across Sheffield Teaching Hospitals. It is kindly suported by Sheffield Hospitals Charity.
We have since developed a vibrant catalogue of projects using all forms of visual and performing arts to help improve the patient experience and create an environment which reflects the high level of care provided in the Trust.
Zest projects are quite unique in that we have an arts in health scheme not singularly focused on environmental changes but also the benefits which participating in creative activity can bring.
Zest has become a gateway between the healthcare and our local community, involving many people in our projects by forging valuable partnerships with local community groups, schools and colleges.
