Arts in Health Artist Directory

Deadline: May 22, 2015

Coordinator: Catherine O'Brian
(603) 271-0795

The State Arts Council’s Arts in Health initiative encourages health care providers to bring experienced professional New Hampshire artists into their facilities or centers to enhance the quality of life and promote an environment conducive to healing for patients, residents, and/or clients. Arts in Health Project Grants are designed especially to support this work. Health care providers may also seek assistance through General Project Grants, a more general category that includes meeting the needs of underserved populations (people with restricted access to the arts including geography, income, age, and disability or health challenges).

The Arts in Health Artist Directory is a resource for health care providers looking for artists who are experienced and skilled in working in a variety of health care facilities.  Performing, literary, media and visual artists are eligible to apply.

To be considered for the Arts in Health (AIH) Directory, artists must:

  • Have the skills and experience needed to plan and present effective and relevant arts programs in and for health care facilities.
  • Have the ability to communicate effectively and diplomatically with health care staff and people of all ages, including those who are undergoing medical care.

Interested artists should contact the Arts in Health Coordinator Catherine O’Brian at or 603-271-0795 to discuss their application prior to submitting it.
