Arts and Health Check Up, Check In, 2017

by Sinead Dolan

A little flavour of what took place during the second Arts and Health Check Up, Check In at The Model, Sligo in May 2017. This unique arts and health get-together included a keynote conversation between artist and theatre maker Mark Storor and Patrick Fox, Heart of Glass, chaired by Ailbhe Murphy of Create; a showcasing strand exploring the nature of collaborative working between artists and healthcare professionals; and facilitated discussion groups that invite participants to listen, share and exchange with one another. Arts and Health Check Up, Check In 2017 was produced by the Waterford Healing Arts Trust through artsandhealth.ie, the Arts Initiative in Mental Health Sligo/ Leitrim and Create, the national development agency for collaborative arts.
