Visible Arts And Well being

The Alliance persistently helps shut collaboration between arts and health practitioners as a key component in building wellbeing and well being for all Australians. The workshop will a) give an outline of current principle and apply in interdisciplinary analysis; b) provide examples from present funded interdisciplinary research among the many workshop organizers; c) present a platform for researchers to present current or proposed analysis for which they’re looking for potential companions; d) focus on perceived boundaries and facilitators to interdisciplinary analysis throughout AHSS/STEM/Health Sciences; and e) develop a summary report and motion plan.

Current research interests embody aesthetic deprivation in hospital; the function of the humanities for older folks; participative and receptive arts; music and health; art therapy and power pain and developing skilled training for artists in healthcare settings.

Of particular importance has been the development of an instructional track, with the first papers on arts and well being from any Irish hospital revealed in the biomedical literature, in addition to the development of a course to coach artists to work in a healthcare environment.

Contributors of arts and health programmes are also varied, from patients to carers to medical students and healthcare employees and there is no one designation or recognised qualification for arts practitioners in healthcare (Dileo & Bradt, 2009; Moss & ‘Neill, 2009).

Whilst it is important to recognise the uniqueness of arts therapists and their intensive training to have interaction with clients who cannot take part in efficiency or participative arts activity, it does not comply with that arts therapies are the proper intervention for ALL shoppers ALL the time.
