I was supposed to be meeting with the principle arts officer at Herefrod Council before Christmas, sadly because of the snowy weather I was unable to get into Hereford to see her. Thank fully it's rescheduled for 7th January and I must say i'm looking forward to it!
Going to speak to her about the possiblitly of setting up an Arts Programme within the Hereford NHS Trust. They don't have one at the moment and I think it will be a fantastic thing for the hospital to have. Art in all it's forms can, and does, help improve the emotional and therefore physical state of people. Even if it's the slightest of things, like making someone smile because it rekindled a past memory....this is of course better than sitting gloomily thinking about the bad things!!
