Cork City Council arts office invites arts practitioners and those involved in healthcare and community development to come to a morning of ideas exchange and networking that focuses attention on arts, ageing and wellbeing. Creative Enquiry – Arts and Older People sharing event and publication launch takes place on 20 February 2020 at Millennium Hall, Cork.

Four artists will share their creative approaches and the outcomes from each of their participatory arts engagement residencies that took place in Cork city and north County Cork during 2019.

Creative Enquiry – Arts and Older People is an investigative collaborative venture involving four artist-residency and older-people-engagement projects, hosted by three distinct arts organisations: the city-based multi-disciplinary Cork Midsummer Festival; Music Alive, a county-wide arts and health group; and Sirius Arts Centre, an arts venue located in the heritage town of Cobh.

Creative Enquiry – Arts and Older People programme is an initiative of two Cork based local authorities, Cork City Council and Cork County Council arts offices, in strategic partnership with Age and Opportunity, the national organisation supporting people to reach their full potential as they age; the HSE Cork Kerry Community Healthcare-Cork South Community Work Department, facilitating community health and wellbeing initiatives; and the three independent partner arts organisations. It is funded through the Arts Council/An Comhairle Ealaíon Invitation to Collaborate scheme.
