The Waterford Healing Arts Trust (WHAT), in partnership with the Dialysis Unit of Waterford Regional Hospital (WRH) recently launched a book and CD entitled Unfolding Time. The publication was produced through WHAT’s arts programme in the unit. Unfolding Time comprises a series of poems and stories by three patients from the unit, Brid Ryan, Johanna Tanner and Liz McCue who worked with artist Philip Cullen to create this book. The publication was funded by the Renal Dialysis Patient Fund and the Irish Kidney Association.
Since 2006, WHAT has been working in partnership with the Renal Dialysis Unit in bringing arts experiences to the bedside of patients in the unit. The visual arts programme, which is based on a patient-centred approach, is facilitated by artists Boyer Phelan and Philip Cullen and funded by the Punchestown Kidney Research Association.
The book is for sale at a cost of €10 + p&p. To purchase a book please contact WHAT on 051 842664 or e-mail WHAT@hse.ie.
