Waterford Healing Arts Trust (WHAT) has announced an Open Call to artists based in Ireland to submit proposals for an exhibition entitled “A Better Place”, to take place at University Hospital Waterford (UHW) later this year. This annual exhibition, curated by WHAT, aims to use original artworks to make UHW a better place for all: patients, visitors and staff.
Now in its fourth year, the “A Better Place” exhibition has grown each year, with a record 63 entries received in 2018. Artists are invited to submit two samples of their work to be considered and voted on for a full solo exhibition with an artists fee and budget. These samples will be displayed at the hospital for a period of four weeks and all who view them will have an opportunity to submit their vote via a voting card. Artists are not identified during the selection process.
A Better Place is generously supported by the Arts Council. The exhibition will be on view from June to September 2019.
