Regional Dialogue Sessions
Regional Dialogue Sessions aimed to bring together artists who are experienced or interested in developing contemporary art projects in healthcare settings. A series of three peer-to-peer Regional Dialogue Sessions took place in Galway, Cavan, Limerick and Offaly once a month in September, October and November 2011. These included open discussions, short presentations and creative workshare opportunities for artists.

The project culminated in National | Dialogue Arts + Health in RUA RED, Tallaght, Dublin | Tuesday 6 December 2011 | 9:30 – 16:30
National | Dialogue Arts + Health was a one-day event which aimed to explore shared outlooks for arts and health practice in Ireland. The event was of interest to artists, arts organisations, health professionals, health service users, and others interested in the area of arts and health practice.
Five Reasons for Artists to Attend:
1. The Dialogue Sessions were a professional development opportunity led by practicing artists.
2. The sessions were open to artists and practitioners, from all artforms,
including those with some experience of working in healthcare settings and also those who had an interest in developing their practice in the area of Arts and Health.
3. The sessions gave artists the chance to talk to other artists, to evaluate
their practice, get practical information and to draw encouragement from work of artistic ambition.
4. The registration fee, to cover all three sessions was €10, giving artists access to nine hours of professional contact time.
5. The main programming costs of the Dialogue Sessions were funded by the Arts Council of Ireland through a one-off special project award.
