Who we are

WHAT’s programme of work for health service users, healthcare staff, the community and for the arts and health sector in Ireland is now delivered by a dynamic team of staff under the direction of Mary Grehan and Claire Meaney. artsandhealth.ie is managed by Claire Meaney and Emma Eager with the support of its editorial panel.

The strategic direction of the organisation and related policy-making is steered by a committed Board of Directors who report to the WHAT membership and the fundraising committee raise much-need funds to support the costs of our Artist in Residence programme, Healing Sounds, Iontas and so much more.

As Ireland’s longest running arts and health programme, WHAT history reflects the vision of a handful of committed individuals in the early 1990s.
