How we work

Whether you're an artist wanting to be part of our programme or just wanting to raise funds, there are lots of ways you can get involved with Artfelt.

Whether you're an artist wanting to be part of our programme or just wanting to raise funds, there are several ways you can get involved with Artfelt. Here is an example of how we work and how you could help us along the way:

Artists

Here at Artfelt we pride ourselves on collaborating with leading artists and striving to reinvent perceptions of art in hospitals. We actively commission a range of different art forms and relish the opportunity to involve new artists.

If you are a creative practitioner interested in working with us then please get in touch via email and we will let you know about any projects coming up. We make regular call outs for artists to work with both the hospital environment and workshop programmes. Please also keep an eye on our social media channels for exciting ways to get involved.

Fundraising

There are all sorts of creative ways to raise valuable funds to support our work, from live art, to organising a concert, to donating the proceeds from an exhibition; the only limit is your imagination!

When you fundraise for Artfelt, you not only raise funds to continue our work at Sheffield Children's, but also help to change mindsets about the arts. With your support we can continue with projects that prove just how valuable the arts are to the wellbeing and health of our young patients and those who help care for them.

  • Donations of artwork

    We are only able to receive donations of artwork in exceptional circumstances, so please do not be offended if we are unable to accept your piece. The majority of work in the hospital is tailored to the department for which it was commissioned and, as such, we rarely accept art which has not been made for this purpose.

    You may prefer to raffle or sell your item and donate the proceeds for us to use where it is most needed.
