Culture at the hospital

Culture at the hospital offers screenings, programming workshops and filmmaking workshops to patients

For more than 20 years, the Ministry of Solidarity and Health and the Ministry of Culture and Communication have led a common policy of access to culture for all public in hospitals. Following the agreement between the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Culture of May 4, 1999, twinning between hospitals and their local cultural network has been strengthened.

The possible action programs are:

  • film screenings.
  • programming workshops
  • filmmaking workshops

The Auvergne Cinema and Audiovisual Education Pole was therefore asked to organize :

  • film screenings, particularly in the pediatric oncology department of the Estaing hospital and in the psychiatric department of the Sainte-Marie Hospital in Clermont-Ferrand
  • programming workshops for children and teenagers with autism from IMAGE'MOI, the psychiatric day hospital service
  • a counseling mission at different artistic workshops

In parallel with the screenings, film production workshops were also set up within the Estaing hospital and were handled by the FAR association.
