Wild Thing (you make my heart sing)
As the Waterford Healing Arts Trust Artist in Residence 2017 I ran a Participatory Arts Project called Wild Thing (you make my heart sing) as part of Well Festival of Arts and Wellbeing, University Hospital Waterford.
The Well Festival of Arts and Wellbeing focuses on the positive contribution the arts can make to one’s mental and emotional health. I wanted to organise a project that was driven by process and community, and conveyed the joy that comes from a project’s journey. Gifting, sharing and equality were also central themes of the project. Each person’s contribution to the work, be it the donation of materials, the making of a flower, the delivery of a flower were core to it’s realisation.
