Experience: An Introduction to Arts, Health and Older People was a three-day online learning programme in 2022 aimed at professional arts practitioners with an interest in working with older people in a health and/or community context.
In this response to the programme, arts consultant and writer Helen Meany offers a snapshot of what she learned and the themes that resonated with her.
Experience was hosted by Age & Opportunity, Waterford Healing Arts Trust and the Arts For Health Partnership Programme of Uillinn West Cork Arts Centre, and funded by the Arts Council and the HSE.
