Featuring artwork created by participants of WHAT’s weekly Open Studio Workshop, The Feel Good Factory is an exhibition of diverse subject matter and media celebrating each participant’s work, their individuality and one of the things that makes them feel good: making art! The exhibition will be on view in the FOH space at Garter Lane Arts Centre, from 7 October to 1 November. 

The Open Studio has been operating in the WHAT Centre for Arts & Health at University Hospital Waterford since 2009. It was established to provide a creative outlet for people living in the community. It has a regular weekly attendance of 12 people comprising users of the Mental Health Services, the Disability Services and others not affiliated to any service.

The Feel Good Factory is the result of the collaborative work between the participants, artist Claire Meaney and volunteers Sarah Lee and Julie Dowling.
