Arts + Health: Check Up Check In 2023 will take place on Wednesday 25 October at Mercer’s Institute for Successful Ageing, St James’s Hospital in Dublin.   

This will be the first time since 2019 that this national gathering of the arts and health sector will be held in person, having taken place online since the onset of Covid-19.

This year’s event will have a special focus on mental health, and the day will feature presentations by some of the most innovative and creative practitioners working in arts and health today. Check Up Check In is open to healthcare professionals, arts practitioners and anyone interested in learning more about this exciting field.

The ‘go to’ event for the arts and health sector, Check Up Check In is organised by Réalta, the National Body for Arts + Health in Ireland, which encompasses the national resource website and Waterford Healing Arts, and is funded by the Arts Council and the HSE.
