Puppet Portal Stage unveiled at Beaumont Hospital

Here are some photos from the unveiling of the Puppet Portal Stage in Beaumont Hospital recently. The Puppet Portal Stage was created by Siobhán Clancy and John Dunn in collaboration with the patients of St. Raphael’s Ward to commemorate their involvement in the Puppet Portal Project, an arts and technology partnership project between Helium Children’s Arts & Health, The Centre for Health Informatics, Trinity College Dublin and Beaumont Hospital in collaboration with Kids’ Own Publishing Partnership. The creation of the stage was supported by Beaumont Hospital School and Beaumont Hospital Arts Office and was launched in Beaumont Hospital on 22nd June 2010.

The Puppet Portal Project  took place in 2009 and will recommence in five hospitals in September. See our call for artists if you are interested in getting involved. http://bit.ly/cNemcr. We will also be launching an evaluation of the project very soon so keep visiting to find out more about the outcomes.
