Description

This one day Seminar will consider the interface between arts and health - creating a context in which professionals from a variety of backgrounds can exchange ideas and experiences. And examine how the practice of art in medical and healthcare environments can humanise and enhance experiences for patients, staff and visitors.

It will explore how ‘art/cultural processes and practices’ can positively contribute to evolving new meanings and content within the field of arts and health; enabling cohesion and relationship building; and contributing to further research and developments in patient care, medical and health care interventions.

Contributors will include:

Orlagh Claffey General Manager MRHT; Dr Gerard Crotty Consultant Haematologist; Elizabeth Meade Advanced Nurse Practitioner, Oncology; Dr Hilary Moss Musician and Music Therapist and Senior Lecturer in Music Therapy at the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance, University of Limerick; Julie Spollen and Rowena Keaveny from Anam Beo who have recently completed an interaction and research project at MRHT; Alison Baker Kerrigan Artist and Programme Manager, The National Centre for Arts & Health, Tallaght Hospital; Ann O’Connor Arts Council Arts and Health Advisor, The Arts Council and former HSE South Arts & Health Coordinator; Ailish Claffey Dancer in Residence at the Age Related Care Unit, The National Centre for Arts & Health, Tallaght Hospital; Ann Marie Kelly Broadcaster with Midlands 103, filmmaker and creator of mental health project Hear Me, See Me; and Sylvia Cullen Playwright and short story writer - facilitator of the Arts Ability Creative Writing programme for Wexford County Council and member of the Arts Council Writers-in-Prisons panel.

Plus a showcase of work from a range of arts and health care professionals - reflecting the scope and potential of arts and health practice.
