Now in its second year, the NSW Health Infrastructure Art and Health Award is a partnership between Museums & Galleries of NSW and NSW Health Infrastructure.

The NSW Health Infrastructure Art and Health Award recognises the role galleries, museums, and Aboriginal cultural spaces across the State are contributing to wellbeing and health outcomes across NSW.

The Award aims to:

  • Support cultural projects and activity that provide accepted health and wellbeing outcomes to community
  • Build capacity for arts in health care across NSW Local Health Districts
  • Encourage development of partnerships between a museum, gallery or Aboriginal cultural space and their Local Health District
  • The Award also acknowledges the cultural collections across health services that celebrate the contribution of NSW Health staff to caring for our communities for more than 200 years.

The successful award will go to one proposal and receive a cash award of $10,000 (GST Excl.) to support the project. The Award will be presented at the 2023 IMAGinE Awards and promoted online and via social media.

Who can enter the Award?
NSW-based public museums, galleries, Aboriginal cultural spaces (such as cultural centres and keeping places), not-for-profit organisations (such as artist-run galleries), and volunteer-run museums or galleries can enter.
