Fresh Arts

Fresh Arts logo

Fresh Arts is the arts programme managed by North Bristol NHS Trust. It exists to enhance the patient experience and improve morale by maintaining and extending an arts programme across Southmead and Cossham Hospitals.  

By helping to create healthcare environments that are welcoming, reassuring, stimulating and personal and that reflect the needs and values of the local community, Fresh Arts’ integrated arts commissions, rolling exhibition programmes and other arts-based projects can have economic benefits, as well as enhancing the spiritual and emotional wellbeing of staff, patients and visitors.  


Fresh Arts has a vibrant exhibitions programme across four galleries in the Brunel building at Southmead Hospital Bristol.
