Experience 2023: An Introduction to Arts, Health and the Older Person will take place on Thursday 7 December at the Centre for Arts + Health, University Hospital Waterford. This is the first time that Experience will take place in person, having been an online learning programme for the last two years.

Presented by Age & Opportunity and Réalta, the National Body for Arts + Health in Ireland, the programme has been designed in response to the need for more training and practical orientation for arts practitioners who already have experience of participatory work in a health and/or community context, and who are interested in developing their practice to include working with older people.

Over the course of the day, Experience 2023 will aim to outline the essential elements involved in working with older people in an arts and health context, and will feature presentations by some of the most experienced and inspiring practitioners working in this specialised field of practice.

Further details and booking information will follow in due course from www.ageandopportunity.ie and www.realta.ie

Experience 2023: An Introduction to Arts, Health and the Older Person is funded by the Arts Council and the HSE.
