County Kildare Arts in Health Map: Call for information

Have you experienced Arts in healthcare as a staff member, patient, family member or visitor?  Or do you organise or facilitate arts activities in healthcare or community settings?

If so, Kildare Arts in Health Steering Group would like to hear from you!

Kildare Arts in Health Steering Group is developing a map of arts activities taking place in health and care settings in County Kildare.  The aim of this project is to get an overview of the scale, range and diversity of arts in health activity in the county. We welcome submissions from individuals and organisations and would be delighted to receive details of current or past arts programmes.  All submissions received will be considered for inclusion in a future exhibition or publication of this work.

The range of potential activities could include exhibitions, classes, performances, workshops, or commissions in any art form; for example, visual art, theatre, music, dance, literature, film and opera.

Deadline for receipt of submissions: 5 pm, 11 February 2010. The submission form can be downloaded from
