Artist Marie Brett is delighted to announce that visual artist Marie Brett is the recipient of a bursary to produce a documentation of her arts and health project Whispers?. The aim of the bursary award is to encourage high quality, creative documentation of arts and health practice nationally. Filmmaker Colm Mullen will make a documentary film about Whispers? an arts and health project partnership between Marie and St Francis Hospice, Raheny, Dublin. The project, which will take place later this year, aims to explore personal and collective experience in relation to ideas of death and care.

The documentary will capture intimate and privileged ‘real-time’ creative moments between the artist and hospice staff as they explore the essence of life and death experience.

The documentation bursary is funded by the Arts Council and the Cork Arts and Health Programme, HSE South. For more information on this bursary please contact
