A Feast of Words: arts and wellbeing, is a collection of events, taking place in March that hopes to be a tonic for inquisitive minds seeking stimulating encounters with various art forms. It is produced by Examinations of Arts and Health, an alliance of cultural programmes in County Louth supported by Create Louth and the Arts Office of County Louth. The aim of the alliance is to promote community based access to arts interventions that examine and enhance human experience and a sense of well being.
