Big Heart 2017 - Call for Artists and Exhibitions


We are Gloucestershire's community hospice, we provide care for people with life-limiting illnesses including support for their families & carers.


We would like to encourage you to submit an artwork on an A5 canvas that would be provided for you. You can request a pack from the link at the bottom. All artworks should be new creations. We would be delighted to accept larger artworks, sculptures & ceramics, but artwork should be no bigger than 60x60cm. We are returning this year with a huge twist, this year there will be a Big Heart Art Crawl across 8 different locations across Gloucestershire. After all exhibtions the artworks will be sold via an online EBay auction (we let you know when it is live) & we hold a final bidding party here at the hospice. All artwork must be submitted by 20th October 2017!

Last Year

Last year more than 200 artists supported Big Heart, helping us to raise an astonishing £25,000. They included amateurs and professionals, photographers and ceramics. Antony Gormley, David Cameron and even Boy George. We are very exited that the Big Heart 2017 has finally launched!


All funds raised will go towards helping people at one of the most difficult times in their lives. Your help means we are able to provide all our services free of charge. Longfield is not part of the NHS so it is simply down to our charity shops & fundraising that we are able to keep our services free of charge.
