We had some great news recently: Helium, the HSE and the Centre for Health Informatics, Trinity College Dublin have been highly commended in the Allianz Business to Arts Awards in the catagory of Best Use of Creativity for their partnership on the Puppet Portal Project in 2009. The project was collaboration between the three organisations and Kids’ Own Partnership and connected children and artists across 4 hospitals through the webportal Ait Eile. We’re absolutely delighted that the partnership has been recognised by such important awards and we’re looking forward to the next phase of the project which will commence in September, this time in 5 hospitals. For more information on the project see http://www.old.helium.ie/portal.html and you can check out the winners on http://www.businesstoarts.ie/awards/awards-allianz-categories/. An evaluation of the project by Spiral Orchard will be available shortly.
