The HERA arts project at Brighton Health & Wellbeing Centre is a network of programmes using arts and creative practices that enhance the quality of life, health and well-being of our patients, staff and community. High-quality arts activities are provided for people struggling with long-term mental and physical illness.

The crowdfunding campaign is aiming to save the Health and Arts programme – by matching the funding grant from the Arts Council to run a bigger, better, three-year programme that can reach many more patients.

Coverage of the crowdfunder and project has so far included:
