The Arts in York Hospital covers all hospitals within York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.  As a team we manage and curate a selection of exhibition spaces, both for temporary and permanent exhibitions.  We also run competitions and inititiatives for staff who may dabble in creativity alongside their hospital roles. 

We have created this opportunity to allow those interested in exhibiting with us to apply for the chance to do so.  We will be reviewing submissions at a minimum of every 6 months.
