Helium Arts, the national children’s arts and health charity

Transforming the healthcare experience of children and teenagers in Ireland through art, imagination and play.


States Parties shall respect and promote the right of the child to participate fully in cultural and artistic life and shall encourage the provision of appropriate and equal opportunities for cultural, artistic, recreational and leisure activity.

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989)
