St. Patrick’s Mental Health Services are hosting two public events to celebrate Culture Night on 22 September 2017. Take part in an evening of collaborative creative writing with Fighting Words and check out artworks by recent graduates from NCAD in the Emerging Artists exhibition.
Fighting Words Creative Writing Event
Arrive at 6.30pm to be allocated to one of the break out creative writing groups facilitated by Fighting Words and Rai Sandstrom in the Lecture Hall.
This will be followed by an open creative writing sharing session inspired by ‘Bittersweet Kind of Beautiful’ – a creative writing journal featuring service user work.
Tonight, we will endeavour to tap into the abundant creativity evident throughout St Patrick’s University Hospital and its cultural environs. We invite you to join us for an evening of live collaborative creative writing hosted by Fighting Words in association with the Twilight Programme at St. Patrick’s University Hospital. In addition to this event, a special publication will be launched, created by Rai Sandstrom with the service users of St. Patrick’s in response to Jonathan Swift’s legacy.
