"Sometimes the patient cures the society." Tonight, a space for arts in hospitals and healthcare. We report on the Cloudlands project, currently taking place in hospitals in Dublin, Cork and Galway, with artists Rachel Tynan and Mark Storor, participant Sarah Dyar and her father Ciaran Dyar, Temple Street Children’s Hospital play specialist Julie Collins, and Helene Hugel, director of the arts and health organisation Helium. We also hear from artists Denis Roche and Brian Maguire on their recent collaborative project, Panachea, with people using the mental health services in Carlow, and discuss wider questions of arts and health with Mary Grehan of the Waterford Healing Arts Trust, and Dublin GP, Dr Austin O’Carroll. First broadcast 17 June 2013.
The programme takes a different approach to the arts in Ireland and internationally with a series of one-hour specials, in-depth one-on-one interviews and panel discussions. Download the podcast and follow us on facebook and twitter.
