Programmes


At Hearts & Minds, we aim to produce high-quality, participatory creative experiences for unwell children, those with complex additional needs and people living with dementia in hospital, hospice, residential and respite care in Scotland.

We achieve our aim through two specialist arts-in-health programmes; The Clowndoctors and The Elderflowers. These performing arts activities engage the imagination of our participants through individually tailored therapeutic artistic interventions, improving the hospital experience and encouraging communication, interaction and laughter.

We run open and inclusive programmes, meaning that we do not focus specifically on one illness or disability, and work with people of varying ages and social backgrounds.
