What is the best way to clearly communicate necessary information? ‘Got it?’ is a project by Anam Beo about communication, health literacy and expression. Artwork and postcards informed by participants during creative workshops on Anam Beo’s Advocacy for Older Persons’ Project will be exhibited from 30 October to 2 November 2018 at Áras an Chontae in Tullamore. 

Health Literacy is defined as the degree to which individuals can obtain, process, and understand basic health information and services needed to make appropriate decisions regarding their health. Anam Beo believes in arts accessibility and that a picture combined with type may counteract information overload, allow focus and elegantly tell a story. With support from the Community Foundation for Ireland, artists Rowena Keaveny and Julie Spollen asked in an inclusive and creative manner ‘What is the best way to clearly communicate necessary information?’

Anam Beo, an arts, health and wellbeing organisation based in County Offaly, has been interacting and communicating with people of different abilities since 2005 with over 13,472 workshop attendances in the growing demographic of the over 55s.

Exhibition Launch
Date: Tuesday 30 October, 4.30pm
Guest Speaker: Tom Meskell, visual artist
