Art speaks a universal language that brings people together.
Does your life beyond cardiology include a passion for painting or drawing? Share your talent and inspire others to do the same!
After the success of last year’s edition, for the second time, the ESC is inviting you to showcase your paintings and drawings at ESC Congress 2023 in the ESC heART Gallery.
Why not use your art to find common ground and make new connections with colleagues and peers from around the world.
The ESC heART Gallery will be located at the heart of the congress venue, allowing all delegates, on their way to sessions, to see and appreciate your original artwork and discover the amazing talents of our ESC Professional Members. The ESC heART Gallery will be open throughout the four days of the congress.
Your art at the Heart House - If your art is selected for the heART Gallery at ESC Congress 2023 in Amsterdam, you can choose to donate it for continued display at the ESC’s headquarters in France after the congress. Donated pieces will beautify the European Heart House for years to come, impressing visitors with the immense talent of its Members.
