For the Arts & Health Sector

Waterford Healing Arts (WHA) has led the development of arts and health in Ireland since 2008, providing information, resources, training and advice and, since 2011, the ground-breaking resource website, developed with Create and funded by the Arts Council.  With the re-structuring of the organisation in 2023 and the allocation of our national arts and health development work to the newly established parent organisation Réalta, WHA will continue to deliver its extensive arts programme at UHW and other healthcare settings.

In addition, as part of the wider Réalta organisation, WHA will offer its programmes and systems as examples of good practice, it will continue to pilot new ideas and initiatives, and this invaluable experience and insight will inform Réalta’s programmes.
