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.
Artfelt prides itself on its collaborations with leading artists and strives 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, you can sign up to our newsletter for the latest opportunities or send your portfolio via e-mail. 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.
Unfortunately, due to the volume of interest we receive, we are unable to engage in individual correspondence with artists.
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.
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 Hospital, 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.
By volunteering some of your time to work with us, your unique skills and experience can help to enrich the work that Artfelt does. Volunteering ranges from helping at our fundraising events, to office work and assisting artists on our workshop programme. Volunteering opportunities are advertised when we have vacancies - sign up to our newsletter or keep an eye on our social media pages for our next call out.
Places on our workshop programme are limited and managed by our Workshop Coordinator. To be considered for volunteering, we ask that you have a recent DBS check and proven experience of working with children.
