Open Call for the NYC Health + Hospitals Community Murals Project. Here’s the RFQ ( link below). Residency Unlimited is managing the submission and review process.
The Community Murals Project is the flagship component of H+H’s Arts in Medicine program. It is designed to encourage creativity, lower stress, build trust and increase engagement between hospitals and members of their surrounding communities – all of which are “protective factors” in combating physician burnout and caregiver fatigue.
Artists are selected through an Open Call and the murals are developed in a collaborative process between the mural artists and the staff at the hospitals, along with other community stakeholders, through engagement events, focus groups, and paint days. The murals also contribute to the hospital environment, creating spaces for joy as well as healing for patients and frontline medical workers.
H+H is the country’s largest municipal hospital system. The H+H Community Murals Project was launched in 2019 and has become the largest public hospital murals project since the WPA.
Please note that the deadline for submissions is Monday December 5, 2022 at 11:59pm EDT
