Have you been involved in any interesting arts and health projects recently that you wish to showcase to your peers? artsandhealth.ie invites submissions of case studies of arts and health projects. The case studies section of artsandhealth.ie provides an excellent opportunity for arts and health practitioners to promote and share their work amongst peers, partners and funders in the field of arts and health. The word count is less than 1000 words and artsandhealth.ie will provide editing support. The next deadline date for submissions of case studies is Monday, 4 February 2013.

The case studies section supports a bank of well documented projects, of artistic merit, which are delivered by professional artists across a diversity of art forms and contexts. Background structures and partnerships are included to give an overview of the provision for arts and health practice. Please see https://www.artsandhealth.ie/case-studies/ for examples of case studies.


The case studies aim:

  • To establish a record of arts and health practice in Ireland that illustrates the diversity and scope of good practice
  • To provide a resource that supports peer learning among practitioners.

Selection process

Arts and health practitioners are invited to submit case studies of arts and health projects to artsandhealth.ie. Submitted case studies will be peer reviewed by a sub-committee of the artsandhealth.ie Editorial Panel.

The criteria for inclusion in the case study section are:
