Arts for Health artist and singer songwriter Liz Clark was recently awarded a residency with Age and Opportunity to collaboratively research, compose and perform in a residential healthcare context her new project ‘homeplace’.
Liz Clark has worked for eight years as an artist on this programme, where she has been busy making connections, song writing and captivating audiences with her good-humoured and participatory music sessions. Beginning as a part time guest, Liz is now a core artists on the programme, applying her inventiveness and commitment during these more challenging times to ensure a quality remote programme is delivered for the hospital residents with the staff.
“I’m really thrilled to be offered the chance to work as an artist in residence with Age and Opportunity for a few months at the beginning of next year. I’ll be taking all I’ve learned working in a new way since the pandemic and applying it in a new context in new counties. As always, there will be singing, song-writing and song-sharing at the heart of my work.”
We wish Liz all the best with her new venture and look forward to the learning she will bring back to the team here in West Cork from her new experiences.
