Arts in Health


Arts in Health is a field that has developed in response to interest regarding the diverse ways in which the arts contribute to health, wellbeing, social inclusion and healthcare practice across a range of settings.

The field has become an inter- and multi-disciplinary arena for those concerned with research, policy and practice initiatives, including artists, health care professionals, community workers, and researchers in the public, private and voluntary sectors.

In County Sligo there are a number of arts and health projects delivered by Sligo County Council Arts Service in partnership with the HSE, which takes a broad-based approach in examining uses of the arts in public health, health promotion and health care.
