How you can help us!



Helium Arts works across the healthcare system offering a range of arts projects for children and teenagers led by professional artists. Projects range from once-off events to longer term residencies.


Our artists in residence collaborate with children and young people in hospital over a number of months in a sustained engagement, creating projects based on participants' ideas and interests.
