Arts for All: Virtual Connections, CW+ – till July 2020

CW+, the official charity of Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, (CWFT) has launched a new digital arts programme designed to support the health and wellbeing of patients at Chelsea and Westminster and West Middlesex University Hospitals, in addition to staff and those isolating in the wider community.  

Created in response to the Covid-19 crisis, this new programme allows artists who would normally engage with patients in a hospital setting to do so virtually. Virtual Connections is curated to engage, entertain and connect and to reflect the voices of patients, staff and artists at this difficult time - encompassing all aspects of the creative arts (drawing, colouring etc) as well as music, singing, mindfulness and creative movement.

The programme is a mix of newly-commissioned work from nine freelance artists producing initially up to 45 hours of content, before adding new content weekly.
