WHAT Centre for Arts & health, UHW, Wednesday 29th May and 6:00 p.m.


Waterford Healing Arts Trust (WHAT) will host a special artwork showcase on Wednesday 29th May. Seven Summer Stars are a group of young teenagers with Cystic Fibrosis who have been making art and connecting creatively since March 2019 as part of Helium Arts’ pilot online art programme. The programme is led by artist Rachel Tynan with the support of An Cosán Virtual Community College.

At the showcase there will be an opportunity to learn about how the young artists engaged with the project and how the online technology supported the creative process in conversation with Rachel Tynan (project artist), Shane Regan (educational technologist, An Cosán VCC) and Emma Eager (project manager, Helium Arts). This will happen over tea and cake in the comfy surroundings of the WHAT conservatory.  All are welcome.

Seven Summer Stars is produced by Helium Arts in partnership with Cystic Fibrosis Ireland, the Irish Museum of Modern Art and Waterford Healing Arts Trust. The programme is supported by the Arts Council, the Ireland Funds, Dublin City Council, and the Health Services Staffs Credit Union.
