A healthcare ecosystem platform has announced the launch of an art gallery that will celebrate the creativity and resilience of people providing and undergoing medical treatment, while highlighting the therapeutic power of art.

Healthcare professionals, patients and caregivers are being invited to submit their artwork to be displayed at the HLTH Europe Art Gallery, held at the inaugural HLTH Europe event.

The gallery will showcase a variety of mediums, including paintings, digital art and photography.

Katy Fryatt, Managing Director, HLTH Europe, said: “We are thrilled to launch the HLTH Europe Art Gallery with the support of the GE HealthCare team.

“Art is a powerful medium through which we can share our experiences and connect with each other.

“We encourage submissions from all stakeholders in the healthcare ecosystem from patient groups to care givers, clinicians and system leaders.

“The gallery will foster a sense of community among the whole healthcare ecosystem through art. Ultimately, we hope the gallery offers a reminder about why we are coming together at HLTH – for the benefit of patients.”

Artworks from European hospitals and art groups, including UCL Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (UCLH) will be on display in the gallery.

Thee artworks have been created by staff and patients, with installations sitting alongside digital screens showcasing artwork from healthcare practitioners, patients and leaders from across the world who can submit ahead of the event.

The gallery will also offer collaborative experiences for people attending the HLTH Europe event.

HLTH Europe will host a number of interactive workshops with local artists, ranging from clay modelling to watercolours and paper cutting.

Simon Philip Rost, Chief Marketing Officer Enterprise Imaging, GE HealthCare, said: “We are proud to be part of this initiative at HLTH Europe.

“We recognise the therapeutic power of art and its contribution to patients’ holistic wellbeing and would encourage everyone in the healthcare ecosystem to consider submitting their work.

“We look forward to providing a creative outlet for patients and healthcare professionals alike later this year in Amsterdam.”

The HLTH Europe Art Gallery will be open to all attendees across the three-day event at the RAI, Amsterdam from June 17-20.
