5. Critical Arts In Health

The *Critical* Arts in Health Network (CAHN) seeks to explore and critique assumptions of the arts in healthcare contexts, to analyze the contexts in which art in healthcare fail, and where they succeed (and under what conditions).

We hope that by doing this, together- across both health and the arts, that we can begin to nurture a critical language of ‘arts in health’ and support the creation and dissemination of artistic methodologies about the subject.

Art in Health is much more than a wellbeing tool. It can be used a systematic critical thinking tool. And we acknowledge that artists/designers working in healthcare often haven’t gotten to understand the importance of how healthcare research and systems work either.  Often artists re-create the wheel, often healthcare professionals recreate the wheel.  It would be much more interesting to see how we can move forward together, acknowledging both value systems and paradigms together.

We hope that this event will help to encourage the field of a critical art and health discourse beyond this network.

We have done an arrange of events - including Double Agency. Here are some photos from previous events, including our DOING group, rather than Reading group - where we allowed object and making to allow to discussion some topics which at times can be difficult to discuss.
