Creating a healing environment to improve the experience of healthcare

The CCH Exhibition Program was established to assist in a holistic approach to healthcare, with a primary objective to create a healing environment and improve the experience of healthcare and patient outcomes, reduce anxiety and stress and create a positive impact on the wellbeing of patients, their loved ones, healthcare staff and hospital volunteers.

Established in 2017 with the opening of the new Royal Adelaide Hospital, the Centre for Creative Health (CCH) Exhibition Program now includes of a range of exhibition spaces across Central Adelaide Local Health Network (CALHN) and the Northern Adelaide Local Health Network (NALHN). CCH Galleries are currently located at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, The Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Lyell McEwin Hospital and the Specialist Ambulatory Rehabilitation Centre (SpARC), Modbury Hospital. In 2022 the CCH Exhibition Program plans to expand to Modbury Hospital and the Repat Health Precinct.


Our Team

Led by curatorial best practice and showcasing ever-changing exhibitions, the CCH Exhibition Program aims to promote the place of arts within a hospital setting, deliver experiences of visual excellence and value, and provide a forum where established, mid-career and emerging artists can engage with new audiences.

The majority of artwork on display in the CCH Galleries is available for sale, with 75% of the sale price going directly to the artist and 25% going back to CCH to assist with the continued delivery of the Exhibition Program.

Where possible the Exhibition Program will actively participate and partner with festivals and events including the Adelaide Fringe Festival, South Australian Living Artists (SALA) Festival and Tarnanthi as well as connect with important community initiatives including Mental Health Week, Harmony Day, Reconciliation Week and World Kidney Day.

CCH invites artists to submit exhibition proposals during an annual call out held in August-September each year. Information on how to apply will be available during the application period. For the most up-to-date information on exhibition opportunities please follow CCH social media pages.

“Thank you to Fiona and all at the Centre for Creative Health for giving all who work in and visit the Royal Adelaide Hospital the opportunity to enjoy all of the wonderful art works displayed here.

Art is an amazing positive distraction for all to immerse ourselves in as we go about our day.”
