Welcome to Air Arts

Air Arts is the arts charity for University Hospitals of Derby and Burton.

Air Arts was established in 2007 with the aim of creating a calm and welcoming environment, providing support and reassurance for patients, staff and visitors, enhancing the environment and providing moments of reflection and distraction.

We do this by bringing art, dance, drama, poetry, storytelling, crafts and music onto the corridors, waiting areas and wards across our five hospitals, working closely with staff and patients to provide personalised creative activities, supporting relationships and improving patient and staff experience.

Air Arts is a wide ranging and ambitious arts in health programme, designed in partnership with staff and patients at University Hospitals of Derby and Burton. The programme aims to distract from illness, improve wellbeing, aid recovery and enhance the hospital experience for 15,000 staff and 2 million patients and visitors every year.
