Lastingly is a CPD workshop designed for artists interested in facilitating participatory workshops in palliative care. This workshop, led by artist Marielle MacLeman, is taking place on 8 October 2018 at Waterford Healing Arts Trust and presented as part of Well Festival of Arts and Wellbeing 2018.

Marielle MacLeman will draw on her seven years of experience at the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice in Glasgow, and subsequent projects, to explore the creative approaches and distinct challenges involved in working with people at a late stage in their lives.

Marielle MacLeman is a visual artist based in Galway. She has worked widely in participatory Arts and Health contexts for 15 years including the development of long-term programmes in palliative care and haemodialysis, and public art commissions spanning care for the elderly, paediatric, maternity bereavement, neonatal, and mental health contexts. Her projects have been supported by The Scottish Arts Council, Glasgow City Council, The Arts Council of Ireland, Galway City Council, the HSE and others. She has written and designed for publications including The Music of What Happens (2014), The Magician and the Swallow’s Tale (2013), Creative Engagement in Palliative Care (2007), and The Pattern of a Bird (2008), a collaboration with hospice artist Jeni Pearson with whom she engaged in an extended dialogue to inform this CPD event.
