Sarah is passionate about using arts, culture and creativity to help individual development, create community cohesion, improve environments and support wellbeing.
Grace manages our participatory arts programme which involves developing new partnerships to provide opportunities for patients, staff and visitors to take part in creative activities. This includes leading our Staff Arts Club initiative, developing our new resident artist scheme and delivering our annual St George’s Arts Week.

Grace loves working at St George’s as it is a real privilege to bring talented creatives from a range of artistic disciplines to our hospital, working with and for our inspiring staff and patient body.
