Transforming clinical settings
The Arts in Health Multipurpose Service (MPS) Pilot Project is an innovative program which provides aged care residents at three facilities in the Murrumbidgee Local Health District (MLHD) in regional NSW with access to professional and quality arts engagement experiences.
The project is a collaboration between Murrumbidgee Local Health District, the Art Gallery of NSW and Health Infrastructure.
Commencing in April 2021, this is a three year initiative delivered at Murrumburrah-Harden Health Service, and Culcairn and Tumbarumba Multipurpose Services. The sites were selected as they are recent redevelopment projects delivered under the MPS Stage 5 Program by Health Infrastructure.
“The impact of the program extends the reach of the Art Gallery of NSW beyond its four walls and into the regions of NSW in significant ways. This program is transforming these new MPS facilities from clinical to homelike settings, with anticipated clinical and wellbeing benefits for residents.”
Minister for the Arts Don Harwin
