Vote for Musicians in Hospitals!

Vote for Musicians in Hospitals

We are thrilled our sponsored project, 'Musicians in Hospitals', has been shortlisted as one of the NSW Government's My Community Projects in the Coffs Harbour electorate. This innovative project will deliver musical performances and activities at the Coffs Harbour Health Campus with the aim of improving the quality of patients and visitors hospital experience and wellbeing.  


Why vote for this project? 

Musicians in Hospitals is part of our commitment and continued work in the area of Arts, Health and Wellbeing. Research has shown that live music in hospitals provides comfort to patients. Music can help reduce stress and anxiety, reduces medication needs, helps to alleviate pain, improves communication with health professionals and shortens lengths of stay. If successful, this pilot program can be rolled out into other hospitals across the region.
