Bookings are now being accepted for Arts and Health Check Up, Check In, the arts and health get-together hosted by artsandhealth.ie, Create and Arts Initiative in Mental Health, Sligo. A networking event for arts and healthcare practitioners and artists who work in healthcare settings, this year Arts and Health Check Up, Check In will take place at The Model in Sligo. 

The event will promote solidarity among arts and health practitioners, enable networking and peer support amongst practitioners, inspire practitioners to develop their practice and facilitate the exchange of ideas.

With this in mind, the keynote speech curated by Create will take the form of a conversation between Patrick Fox of Heart of Glass UK and Mark Storor, an acclaimed and award-winning artist, who works in the space between live art and theatre.

• There will be a series of paired presentations exploring the nature of collaborative working between artists and healthcare professionals.

• Members of Arts and Health Coordinators Ireland (AHCI) will present their collective manifesto developed at Tyrone Guthrie Centre in December 2016.

• Highlighting the burning issues and hot topics from the morning’s talks, attendees will have an opportunity to meet their peers in facilitated discussion groups. The artist Naomi Draper will employ various creative devices to allow entry points into conversations that invite participants to listen, share and exchange with one another.

Join us for this special Arts and Health networking event and keep the conversation going.
