The art of health and well-being
6 November @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Historically, the arts have been seen as the remit of the talented few, with most of us putting down our paintbrushes, tidying away our dancing shoes and closing our poetry books after we have left school.
This event aims to challenge that notion, showing that not only can everyone engage with the arts, but that art and creativity can be inherently beneficial to our health and wellbeing.
We will showcase the artistic work of both healthcare professionals and people living with chronic illness; who will describe the benefit that the arts have had on their health and wellbeing.
The event will include live music performances, photography and poetry. Additionally, we will showcase artistic work created by patients during haemodialysis sessions, produced as part of a research project led by Queen’s University Belfast.
