Arts and Health Check Up, Check In Conference
29 Jan 2016 (Past)
Bookings are now being accepted for Arts and Health Check Up, Check In, the unique arts and health get-together planned by artsandhealth.ie, WHAT, Create and Dublin City Council’s The LAB.
Taking place in Dublin on 29 January 2016, this event aims to take the pulse of arts and health in Ireland and promote solidarity and connection among practitioners.
Set against the backdrop of 1916 commemorations, ‘Arts and Health Check Up, Check In’ will explore the notion of a shared manifesto for this field of practice. The day will open with presentations from Pat Cooke, UCD School of Art History and Cultural Policy, and Clive Parkinson, Arts for Health, Metropolitan Manchester University. Parkinson will talk about the political thinking that led to and is embodied in the UK’s first Manifesto for Arts and Health. See http://www.artsandhealth.ie/perspectives/a-love-filled-slap-a-manifesto-for-arts-and-health/
Participants will explore their own ideas around a manifesto through a hands-on workshop with artists Jesse Jones and Eleanor Philips. Examples of diverse practice will be presented in a pecha kucha format by Jennie Moran, Mary Dineen, Marie Brett, Ríonach Ní Néill, Alan Counihan, Charlotte Donovan, Marielle MacLeman and Ray Yeates.
Ailbhe Murphy, Director of Create, will chair a panel discussion exploring creative and collaborative practices of resistance and care featuring Prof. Gerry Kearns, Maynooth University, Dr. Austin O’Carroll and artists Dominic Thorpe and Niamh O’Connor.
Admission costs €20 including lunch by the acclaimed Luncheonette.
