Helium Arts’ Values


Childhood Well-being

We value a child’s right to a quality child- hood, regardless of the state of their health. We respect the individuality and autonomy of older children and teenagers and are a entive to their different needs. We believe nurturing imagination and expressing creativity is a principal part of developing childhood well-being.

Artistic Excellence

We enable artistic processes that bring about high quality outcomes to ensure that children are encouraged and inspired to continue their creative journeys into adulthood.

Collaboration

Collaboration is at the core of what we do. We listen to the young people, families, artists, healthcare staff, and organisations that we work with. We respect their contribution and value their association with us, as equals.

Learning

We are curious and keen to try out new ideas, to innovate and invent. We document and evaluate our projects, engage in action-research, share our learning with peers internationally and keep abreast of the latest trends and thinking. We value how we can learn through play, both as children and adults.
