Callout for Arts and Health research participants

Alison O’Connor, a researcher at the University of South Wales is exploring the emotional impact on arts practitioners of working in health, social care and participatory settings and how supervision, or lack of, affects artists wellbeing.

While great strides have been taken in research into participant experiences of Arts in Health, there has so far been very little exploration of practitioners’ perspectives (Naismith, 2019). This study will investigate the experiences of Arts in Health practitioners/artists working in health, social care and participatory settings.

Alison is a supervisor and psychotherapist with a background in Arts in Health and is conducting this study as part of an MA in Consultative Supervision.

She is conducting interviews with arts practitioners between Feb and April 2020. These can be conducted in person or over the telephone/skype and would take between 30-60 mins.
