Moments of Beauty

A small moment of magic as brush touches canvas; a glimpse into the creative lives of teenagers living with illness; a poet, a raconteur, and two nurses escaping the clinical confines of dialysis … the documentary films that have been funded by the documentation bursary offer powerful, candid, sometimes funny, often poignant insights into arts in healthcare.

the team at have gathered them in one place to offer inspiration at an extraordinary time. The collection includes one from our own Arts for Health Partnership Programme, Stories From the Well Field, by Sharon Whooley, documenting a project that took place in St.Josephs Unity, Bantry General Hospital, led by Tess Leak

Five short films have been awarded the documentation bursary since 2013, created by some of Ireland’s leading filmmakers and artists. The documentation bursary is funded by the Arts Council and the HSE.

Moments of Beauty is just one of many resources the website is offering the sector to support and inspire the sector through COVID 19
