The Museum of Song Postal Project is a song collecting project by artists Tess Leak and Sharon Whooley. Part of the Arts for Health Partnership Programme, West Cork, it was adapted in response to the isolation of older residents in community hospitals during the Covid-19 lockdown in April 2020. Over the course of spring and summer, the artists sent packages full of poetry and song to participants. The Songbook, designed by Sharon Whooley, includes thematic lists of the 160 songs collected from the community hospitals along with reproductions of the visuals sent out during the project.
