Why Heart Work Heroes?

What is Heart Work Heroes?


Heart Work Heroes is the largest outdoor art exhibition for healthcare ever. Our goal is to visibly express our appreciation for healthcare workers in a positive and colorful way.

Additionally, we aim to inspire young people to pursue a career in healthcare. Only with sufficient healthcare workers can we keep the healthcare system healthy.

Advisory Board

It takes a lot of knowledge and skill to make an open-air exhibition like Heart Work Heroes a success, and we can’t do it alone. Fortunately, we have found a number of people with their 'Hearts' in the right place who advise us based on their years of experience in their respective fields of expertise.

It's fantastic that people in healthcare are being put in the spotlight, not just because of COVID-19, but because they always keep going.
