NVTV - Promoting the Art of Health and Well-being

Press/Media: Public Engagement Activities


The Renal Arts Group recently held a successful event at the Sunflower public house, Belfast ‘The Art of Health and Wellbeing’ as part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science 2019. The event aimed to explore the intersection of creativity, arts and health and showcased a variety of performances from patients and healthcare professionals, as well as an exhibition of art created by patients during haemodialysis. This artwork was generated via Claire Carswell’s PhD research study, supervised by Dr Helen Noble, Professor Joanne Reid and Mr Ian Walsh, which is exploring the feasibility of implementing arts-based interventions in haemodialysis units.

The event was promoted on social media networks and invitations were sent to staff and patients across the Health and Social Care Trusts. Members of RAG were invited on to NVTV, a local media channel, to discuss the event and the research being carried out by the group which you can watch here:
