Following nearly 15 years of working with artists from West Cork and further afield, a group of people attending Skibbereen Day Care Centre decided to create their own museum at Uillinn Gallery in Skibbereen in December 2016. The Museum included exhibits of poetry, art and objects collated by participants at Skibbereen Day Care Centre working over eight sessions with artists Tess Leak and Sarah Ruttle inspired by objects made or mended.
The project is part of the Arts for Health Partnership Programme. Based in West Cork the programme provides a managed and integrated arts programme for older people in healthcare settings. Managed by West Cork Arts Centre, Arts for Health runs all year round and is delivered by team of professional artists from different disciplines.
