New Website Online Soon
Welcome to the Grampian Hospitals Art Trust (GHAT) web site. Since the launch of the original Hospitals Arts Project in 1985 we have continued to work towards the enhancement of health care spaces throughout NHS Grampian.
Alongside other projects our core business remains as expressed in our originating Deed of Trust:
‘… to promote the display of works of art in the hospitals… for the enlightenment, enjoyment and education of patients… and all those who work in or visit these hospitals.
Opportunity for Film-maker
Grampian Hospitals Art Trust is currently developing a bespoke gallery space situated within Aberdeen Royal Infirmary due to open July 2014. As part of the gallery an area has been built to house NMR1, the world’s first full-body MRI Scanner designed and manufactured by University of Aberdeen in 1980 and used for 3 years by around 1000 people until it was replaced in 1983.
Programme curators Tamsin Greenlaw and Fraser MacDonald are looking for a filmmaker with experience in producing high-quality work within a pre-determined schedule and budget.
The Film-maker will be required to make a 10-15 minute film that documents the restoration and relocation of NMR1 to the Suttie Space which is due to begin in Feb 2014

Susie Hunt @ HMT
Concealed and Revealed
A figurative painter as well as exploring landscape, Susie Hunt has recently been investigating the ambiguity of images taken from old film. She has enjoyed engaging with the half remembered, the monochromatic and family connections. When an old film of her father Graham Hunt, plus forgotten family from the 30's came to light she found it an irresistible source of imagery.

Concealed and Revealed runs up to Friday 21st February 2014. Contact HMT Box Office for opening hours.
Grampian Hospitals Art Trust is delighted to present an exhibition of paintings by patients who attend the Specialist Rehabilitation Units at Woodend Hospital.
