Hospital Art honoured at Norfolk’s Arts Awards

The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (NNUH) has been nominated for a Norfolk Arts Award as part of The Hostry Festival 2012, an annual arts festival, which is taking place at Norwich Cathedral this October.

The aim of the Norfolk Arts Awards is to celebrate the diverse and growing arts landscape across the county. NNUH’s Hospital Arts Project has been nominated in the Education and Community Award category for the support it gives to patients, their families and staff, as well as providing arts events and exhibiting artwork at the hospital.

Emma Jarvis, Hospital Arts Co-ordinator at NNUH, said: “We are thrilled to be nominated for this award and are really pleased that the brilliant art we share with our local community is being recognised. Art makes our hospitals warm, welcoming and uplifting and it plays a crucial role in improving the environment for our patients, their family and friends who visit them, and our staff.”

There are twelve categories in the Norfolk Arts Awards and the winners will be announced at a ceremony on Friday 26th October at the Hostry at Norwich Cathedral.
