Celebrating Staff Creativity at MFT + 50 years of Lime Arts 

MFT Trust Chairman to open new and exciting hospital art gallery exhibitions with a special early evening private view.

The new exhibitions showcase work created by MFT staff on Lime’s award-winning Create+ arts referral programme and feature a collection of archival photographs depicting 50 years of Arts + Health across Manchester’s hospitals. The show highlights how MFT’s globally recognised arts programme delivered by Lime has been positioned at the forefront of creative innovation in healthcare, for over half a century.

For Lime Director Dawn Prescott, her mission to fill MFT hospitals with art gains even greater significance through artwork created by NHS staff themselves.

“We’re proud of the journeys NHS staff have taken with our artists through our Create+ programme. For many staff it has been an extraordinary journey, developing trust and self-belief which has positively impacted on people’s personal and professional lives and demonstrated that art is for everyone! We look forward to using the exhibition to share this learning with our cultural partners, NHS leaders and MFT staff. Lime’s permanent gallery spaces at MFT allow us to display the artwork in a gallery setting and gives patients, relatives, carers and members of the public fresh insight into the lives of the NHS professionals dedicated to their care.”

The Lime Exhibition Private View will take place on Wednesday 26th June at 4.30pm at the Manchester Royal Eye Hospital Atrium.
