A one day Arts and Health Seminar will be held at Midlands Regional Hospital, Tullamore on 6 July 2017. Submissions are sought for documentation of artworks / performances / projects that will be showcased via projection screen to attendees. The deadline for submissions is 19 May.

Show us examples of past, current and/or future work – making in – working with – profiling of – facilitating to – commentating on – exhibiting of – connected to – creative processes and practices in hospitals and multifaceted healthcare settings.

This one day seminar will be curated by Ann Lawlor in collaboration with Midlands Regional Hospital, Tullamore and Anam Beo (an independent arts and health organisation that delivers the Offaly Arts-in-Health Programme).

There are many communities/stakeholders that co-exist within hospital and wider healthcare settings. The Seminar encourages interaction between all communities and the role ‘art/cultural processes and practices’ can positively contribute to evolving new meanings and content; enabling cohesion and relationship building; and contribute to further research and developments in patient care, medical and health care interventions.

This is an unpaid opportunity, however, you will be part of a cohort of creative practitioners who have/are engaging and exploring the field of arts and health including but not limited to hospitals, multifaceted healthcare settings and within communities.

The brief is very extensive in terms of artworks/performance/projects that will be considered. We are interested in showcasing examples that reflect current models of practice as well as practices creating new directions and meanings and interpretations.

This opportunity will:
– Showcase your work to arts and healthcare practitioners and professionals
– Disseminate your work and practice to new audiences

All submissions and enquiries to annmlawlor.projects@gmail.com. Please include:
– URL links; low resolution audio visual materials and .jpeg images
– A brief statement (100-150 words) introducing yourself and your submitted work

On selection, you will be contacted and advised on exact digital formatting required for showcasing work.
