Creative types are invited to attend a series of arts and music open days at Heartlands Hospital, Good Hope Hospital and Solihull Hospital, to learn more about the exciting arts volunteer projects on offer.

The arts department will be on-hand to talk about the range of opportunities available for those interested in arts and music. Locals will also have the chance to make music with Soundbeam, a device which uses interactive sensors to translate body movements into music.

The Heartlands open day will take place on Tuesday 27 May between 11am and 2pm in the Hospital’s main entrance mezzanine; the Good Hope open day will take place on Wednesday 28 May between 11am and 2pm opposite the main x-ray department; and the Solihull open day will place on Monday 2 June between 1:30pm and 4:30pm in the Hospital’s main entrance.

Georgina Farrow, music co-ordinator at the Trust, said: “The arts and music open day is an exciting opportunity for us to raise awareness of the numerous art and music activities taking place around the Hospital. We are also interested in speaking to people attending who would like to volunteer with arts and crafts at the Hospital.

“Arts and music can help provide a welcoming and positive atmosphere within the hospital environment, as well as offering patients reassurance and comfort.”

To find out more about the open day, please contact the arts department on 0121 424 0113.
