An Arts Strategy Working Group was formed in early 2020. The Group is meeting as part of ongoing discussions to maximise the benefits of integrating The Arts into the Stage 3 project

The Group is now preparing an Expression of Interest for artists to create works for the Cultural Courtyard and a ground floor entrance area in the new Stage buildin known as Hospital Steet.

The Arts in Health covers all art forms including heritage, literature, visual, performing and dramatic arts.

The integration of The Arts into the design and delivery of health services can improve health outcomes and benefit patients, visitors and staff.

As outlined in the NSW Health and the Arts Framework, the main role of any integration of the arts into the Wagga Wagga Health Service (WWHS) Redevelopment is to improve health outcomes and promote health and wellbeing in the community.  

With the WWHS Redevelopment Stage 3 project in the design and delivery stages, Murrumbidgee Local Health District (MLHD) is calling for Expressions of Interest (EOI) from people wishing to join an Art Strategy Working Group. This group will provide feedback and advise on the arts in the new Stage 3 Ambulatory Care Building
