Creative Arts and Humanities Health Collaborations: Perspectives and Projects from Dublin City University


You are invited to join the IHR Health Humanities Initiative to a talk by Briege Casey of Dublin City University. In this talk, she will outline the synergies between health humanities, arts and health approaches and healthcare/education practice and discuss recent developments in these fields in Ireland and the UK. Dr. Casey will share with us some specific research studies and collaborative arts-based projects from the domains of healthcare practice and healthcare education.
