HEART Events - Wednesday 24 February

We've just announced our next speaker for HEART Events (Art in Healthcare's series of monthly talks on health and art). Drum roll please!

MARK EISCHEID - an award-winning American artist - will be talking about his time as artist in residence at QMRI (Queen's Medical Research Institute).

Eischeid was the 2009 recipient of the ‘British Heart Foundation Centre of Research Excellence Artist in Residence Award’ and is currently completing a postgraduate degree in Art, Space & Nature at Edinburgh College of Art. He also has a professional background in geology and landscape architecture.

It promises to be a fascinating talk and will be followed by drinks and mingling at a nearby bar.

  • 5-6pm
  • Wednesday 24 February
  • Lecture Room 1, Minto House, 20-22 Chambers Street, Edinburgh

Put it in your diary!

Allow us to introduce ourselves...

We're new to this blogging business, so excuse us if it takes a little while to get the hang of it!

Art in Healthcare is a Scottish charity, which believes in the healing power of art. Our main aim is to put artwork into healthcare settings and improve the physical environment for patients, visitors and staff. We currently have over 850 stimulating works of art on display around Scotland.

We also run a series of talks on art and health. More information on HEART Events coming shortly...

Until later!
