Beauty & Struggle with Sarah Ruttle: A CPD workshop for artists of all disciplines working in arts + health

As part of the Well Festival of Arts & Wellbeing 2024, artist Sarah Ruttle will lead a continuous professional development (CPD) workshop, focusing on reflective practice as a methodology to sustain arts and health practice.  In a relaxed and safe space, participating artists of all disciplines will be invited to share from their own experience, while gaining insights from peers working in arts and health.

Based in West Cork, visual artist Sarah Ruttle has a solo and participatory arts practice.  Individually, she specialises in illustration, paper-cut art and textiles, making art to capture unique moments of humanity, emotion, courage and hope.  Collaboration is central to Sarah’s work with groups, developing playful, considered and inclusive projects with participants and other artists within health and social care settings.

Sarah has been working on the Arts for Health Partnership Programme artist team in West Cork since 2008 and is an Arts Educator for ‘In the Picture,’ a Dementia friendly gallery programme in Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre.  She has also developed projects within the community and in an acute mental health setting.  In 2021, she received an Arts Participation Bursary Award from the Arts Council.
