The Centre for Creative Health (CCH) welcomes artists, curators and arts collectives to submit applications of interest for inclusion in the 2020 exhibition program at the Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH) and Hampstead Rehabilitation Centre (HRC).

CCH aims to improve the quality and experience of healthcare by developing and enhancing the creative, healing environments across the Central Adelaide Local Heath Network (CALHN). In the instance of the RAH, this includes strengthening the art already integral to the artistic design. CCH achieves these objectives by providing best-practice arts and design programs, projects and other creative initiatives for the benefit of patients, families, staff, CALHN and the wider community.

The exhibition program is coordinated by CCH’s Curatorial team. It reflects the diversity and vitality of contemporary artists whilst promoting the role of art in a health context.  These exhibitions present new opportunities for audience engagement by promoting a creative, healing environment and democratising experiences of visual excellence. Such experiences are comparable to those acknowledged by Government arts agencies and the National Arts and Health Framework. They also enable staff, patients and visitors to purchase artworks.

CCH encourages submissions featuring works which are technically skilled, conceptually rich and visually engaging. Those exhibitions with a strong Arts-in-Health context will be most highly considered.

Successful applicants will inform the curation of the 2020 visual art program and receive the following:

  • An opportunity to exhibit in a unique, publicly accessible, state-of-the-art health precinct.
  • An opportunity to sell artwork (CCH receives 25% commission to support the gallery program).
  • Promotional support through social media platforms and printed material.
  • Curatorial support by CCH’s established team of curators.
  • An Exhibition Information Pack and Artist Agreement which must be signed and returned by a specified date.


Exhibition proposals are accepted for the Emerging Artist and Commercial Galleries at the RAH and any/all of the three galleries at HRC. Applicants are advised to read the attached gallery documents prior to submission, as specific details and requirements may vary.  Submissions should consider all requirements and the specified aims of CCH’s gallery program.

Applications must be submitted via the online form by midnight, Monday 30th September 2019.

For any additional information please contact Steph Cibich – Assistant Curator/Program Officer ( or visit the Centre for Creative Health’s website (
