Conference on arts and health, Royal Irish Academy 15-16 June

A major international conference with an arts in healthcare theme is to be held in June 2011 at the Royal Irish Academy, Dublin. Anyone with an interest in this important aspect of healthcare systems is invited to attend.

The conference, entitled Narratives of Health and Illness across the Lifespan, is organised by the National Centre for Arts and Health and is among the many academic activities marking the Tercentenary of the Trinity College Dublin Medical School. It is sponsored by the Meath Foundation.

This major international conference reflects the vitality of arts in health programmes at AMNCH and beyond, as well as featuring experts on medical humanities and arts therapies.

One of the highlights of the conference is the first public performance of composer Ian Wilson’s new work, Bewitched, which he made as part of an Arts Council funded residency in the stroke service at AMNCH.
