Light up the night with Well

Festival of Arts and Wellbeing “Night Flowers” project

Dear Editor

Waterford Healing Arts Trust is looking for Waterford people to take part in lantern-making workshops to help them to light up the night at University Hospital Waterford (UHW) as part of the Well Festival of Arts and Wellbeing 2017. “Night Flowers”, an installation project with artist Tom Meskell, will involve the lighting up of dozens of individually created flower lanterns – sculptures shaped around a wire frame and lit from within – to be created by the Waterford community.

The workshops take place at Waterford Healing Arts Trust (WHAT) on Friday 8 and Saturday 9 September from 10am-12.30pm and 1.30pm-4pm. Anyone over 15yrs is welcome to take part – No experience is necessary. The workshop fee is EUR10.00 for a half-day or full day (free to WHAT members). Places are limited so advance booking is recommended. Contact , email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call (051) 842664. The resulting Night Flowers will be lit up at UHW every night from Monday 9 to Friday 13 October during this year’s Well Festival of Arts and Wellbeing, which celebrates participation in the arts by all.

Artist Tom Meskell has been developing this style of lantern making for 15 years and is looking forward to working with people from the Waterford community to create this special Night Flowers installation: “This is a great opportunity for people to make large sculptural forms with expert guidance. Participants will get to learn lantern-making technique and will be encouraged to take ownership of the project. Over the years, I have developed a system of creating this work where everyone can be involved in a meaningful way. They don’t need any experience to take part, but enthusiasm is essential! The flowers will be various sizes, but the minimum will be 3ft, and we’ll work as a team to create as many flowers as we can. When we get to light them all up during the festival, it’ll be visually spectacular and really special”.

Well Festival of Arts and Wellbeing is presented by Waterford Healing Arts Trust, Garter Lane Arts Centre and Waterford City and County Libraries. Now in its 5th year, and coinciding with World Mental Health Day and World Hospice Day, this multidisciplinary, fun and accessible festival champions the links between arts and wellbeing with a wide-ranging programme of innovative events for all ages across all artforms, including music, art, dance, film and literature. The 2017 festival takes place 9-15 October. The festival programme will be launched on 18 September.

Between them the three had accounts nearing 2 million euros in off-shore accounts and let's face it, these people aren't exactly Robert De Niros or Meryl Streeps but three bog standard, and that's putting it mildly, actors, from a middling comedy serie …
