          The arts are an active force in health care in Ireland. Today’s inspiring post shares the story of the “Tree of Remembrance,” a collaborative work of art made over two years by the patients, family, and staff in the Dialysis Unit at University Hospital in Kilkenny, Ireland. It forms a permanent installation in the unit. The story may offer some great ideas for your own community!

     I have been both following and working to expand the idea that the most important issues of our time come at the intersection of the arts and science. The work of Harvard University professor and serial entrepreneur David Edwards  has been central to this development. In no area of our lives is the collaboration of the arts and science more important than that of healthcare. Art and science must become essential partners in the work of fostering individual and community wellness.

     This thoughtful essay by Francois Matarasso for Arts & Health Ireland is an excellent introduction to the relationship between the two. He raises important questions that I will be considering also in a later blog post: art and science are different, they work in different ways, and we must examine their effects with measures appropriate to each. This is a lesson much needed in our numbers-focused world.
