What's On: Concerts, Exhibitions & Events in Hospitals

We organise a regular programme of temporary exhibitions and concerts in NHSGGC hospitals for patients, visitors and staff. All our events are free and everyone is welcome. 

Your Hospital Live Arts - Spring Digital Events

Your Live Arts Events have gone digital. As the artists and performers can’t be with you in the flesh this Spring, they have created a unique selection of online events and screenings.

Digital Live Arts Winter 2020/21 Events Programme 

Our Live Arts Winter Events Programme (pdf) is now in digital format and available to all NHSGGC staff, patients, friends and families over the festive break. 

View the flyer (pdf) with links to all events.

The programme is supported by NHSGGC Endowments and Scottish Cultural Partners who send their warm wishes in what has been a tough year for many. 

Next Year, 2021, we will stay digital producing a bi monthly live arts events programme until we can combine the digital with real performances.

Current Exhibition: Shout Outs @ Staff Rest and Relaxation Hubs, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Acute Hospitals (From 24 September 2020)

Displayed in the newly opened NHSGGC staff Rest and Relaxation Hubs, Leanne Ross’ Shout Outs offer immediate bursts of joy, reflection and humour for the front line staff, key workers and other NHS employees who use these spaces. 

Made instinctively, Leanne’s work elevates her daily routine by turning mundane everyday activities into bold, energetic and often humorous slogans and phrases. These passionate declarations written large over bold, brightly coloured backgrounds combine a sense of protest with the universal joy of what it is to shout something out loud.

Selected pieces by Leanne have been chosen for display in NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Rest and Relaxation Hubs. With frontline staff under extreme pressure throughout the COVID19 pandemic, the NHS have developed a series of new R&R Hubs that are intended to provide care and respite for all staff. Leanne’s fresh, energetic, funny and kind works will enliven these spaces. They will speak directly to staff and hopefully help to put a smile on their faces, before or after they go on their shift.

For those inspired by Leanne’s work, a limited number of blank Shout Outs will be available on which staff can write their own messages. These will be displayed alongside Leanne’s work and can be shared online via the hashtag #ShoutOutNHS

Developed and delivered with support from KMA Dot Com, ArtLink Edinburgh, Laura Aldridge, Lauren Gault and Kendall Koppe.
