Carepool Karaoke in West Cork

Arts for Health composer team 2017: Liz Clark, Fiona Kelleher, Darragh Kearns Hayes, Justin Grounds, Mailo Haas and Maurice Seezer got together yesterday, 12 October with Justine Foster of West Cork Arts Centre to shoot a short film to encapsulate the first nine months of the programme’s exciting development into music. Rather than a written evaluation the artists shot a parody, ‘Carepool Kareoke’. The film will be released via youtube on the same day as the new programme website, 24 November 2017.

Justine Foster Programme Manager commented on the style of documenting, ‘We wanted to approach this evaluation with the same creativity as we do the programme. While we are likely also to do some traditional research in relation to the impact of the programme, in creating this short playful film we hope to reach more people involved; the families, busy staff and visitors to the care settings the programme takes place in.’
Special thanks to Liz Clark for taking on the driving and Darragh Kearns Hayes for filming​, Kevin O’Farrell for photography​ and to programme partners Mary Willis, Teresa O’Sullivan, Paddy Ryan and all the participants at Skibbereen Day Care Centre.
