Celebrating Arts in Health at the 2023 IMAGinE Awards

Health Infrastructure is a proud sponsor of the Arts and Health Award at the 2023 IMAGinE Awards, in partnership with Museums & Galleries of NSW.
The Arts and Health Award celebrates the role of arts in fostering community well-being, particularly within healthcare environments.
This year, the award was presented to Boomalli Aboriginal Artist Cooperative for their artist led consultation with Aboriginal stakeholders to transform the St Vincent’s Hospital Emergency Department waiting room and create an environment that fosters comfort and cultural connection.
At the end of the consultation process, an artist from Boomalli Aboriginal Artist Cooperative will create an artwork that reflects the community’s input, amplifying the voices and experiences of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients.
St Vincent’s Hospital is known for serving a diverse community and supports a substantial number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients, highlighting the need for a space that is less intimidating and more comforting.
Health Infrastructure Chief Executive Rebecca Wark was delighted to be partnering with Museums & Galleries of NSW on this award.
“In highlighting the importance of cultural projects that promote health and wellbeing, build capacity for arts in healthcare, and foster partnerships with Local Health Districts, this award reinforces our shared commitment to creating a brighter and healthier future for all,” Ms Wark said.
Health Infrastructure is delivering the Arts in Health program and is committed to integrating arts into NSW Health capital works to create engaging public health spaces and improve clinical health and wellbeing outcomes for patients, staff and visitors.
