Amplify is a project of ambitious participatory arts activity based in NHS Grampian (NHSG) hospital sites. The programme of work is designed to support GHAT’s vision – the pursuit of excellence in arts within healthcare practice, regionally integrated and embedded, nationally recognised and respected. The project will push the boundaries of cultural practice within the arts and health sector by investigating the key role of the artist in this context.

The key goals of Amplify are to deliver a programme of tailored creative experiences, employ and empower professional artists, increase awareness of GHAT within NHSG users and establish new business practices and organisational knowledge to support GHAT’s sustainability.

The core of Amplify is the provision of playful, quality creative programmes of art that enrich each staff, patient and visitor experience.

Amplify is funded by Creative Scotland and supported by NHS Grampian.
