Artist Tess Leak and Activities Director Sarah Cairns from Bantry General Hospital explore the learning from the remote delivery of The Museum of Song Postal Project. This conversation took place via Zoom in January 2021.
The Museum of Song is part of the Arts for Health Partnership Programme in West Cork, which has provided a managed arts programme for older people in healthcare settings since 2005. The project was created and adapted by Tess and artist Sharon Whooley as a response to the isolation of residents in five Community Hospitals in March 2020 at the start of lockdown restrictions. In St. Joseph’s Unit, Bantry General Hospital, Sarah Cairns facilitated the delivery of the Museum of Song.
The Arts and Health Conversation Series 2021 is produced by artsandhealth.ie and funded by the Arts Council and the HSE.
