Help make an extraordinary hospital even better!

Artfelt Team

Artfelt, The Children’s Hospital Charity’s arts programme, exists as part of the Charity’s commitment to improve the hospital environment. Our surroundings have a powerful effect on how we feel, and that’s especially important in hospital, where the environment can influence wellbeing and comfort for our patients, visitors and staff. Artfelt works closely with the staff of Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust on improving their facilities and engages patients in creative workshops during their time in hospital.

We currently have two vacancies to join our team:

They will also be required to support the Artfelt Team, and wider Charity Team, in the fundraising, marketing and promotion of the arts programme.

Under the guidance of the Artfelt Manager, the Project Officer will have the ability to administer the commissioning process; liaising with artists, stakeholders, contractors, architects and engage staff, patients and families in the creative process.
