Visual artist Fiona Dowling and composer George Higgs present The Hospital Worker’s Song in collaboration with Tallaght University Hospital Choir (TUH Choir) and The National Centre for Arts and Health on 27 November 2018. This is the fourth in a series of performances as part of the artists’ public art project Work Songs.
The Hospital Worker’s Song, composed by George Higgs, will be directed by Michael Fay and sung by the TUH Choir, which is made up of hospital staff from many areas including nursing staff, radiography, lab staff, mental health services, arts, reception, administrators and retired staff members. The Hospital Worker’s Song was directly inspired by interviews and conversations between Fiona Dowling and the choir members. After the performance, the artists, singers, project curators and all involved in the project will be available for a Questions and Answers session.
Work Songs is commissioned under IN CONTEXT 4 – IN OUR TIME, South Dublin County Council’s Public Art Programme for 2016-2019 under the Per Cent for Art Scheme.
