Hey, check out this track on SoundCloud: Lachlan Hawkins Music “Let’s Escape” – Handpan live in the Stairwell!

Live music in the stairwell, foyer, admissions area and café at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital has been lifting spirits since it kicked off as an experiment in June 2015.

Behind this objective is a passion informed by experience and the well researched positive impact and elevation of well-being that music brings to people in these facilities including patients, staff and visiting friends and families.

From June 15 – August 8, 2015 a small group of professionally trained musicians associated with Paint it Red at Jugglers Art Space Inc and curated by Peter Breen performed live music in the public spaces on the Hospital campus each Monday morning from 8.30am – 11.00am.

The response has been overwhelmingly positive. The hospital executive has now invited Jugglers to prepare a long term proposal and schedule with a view to the expansion of the program and potential funding. Jugglers is very keen for potential partners to work with us in sponsoring this exciting project.
