Anam Beo believes in arts accessibility and that a picture combined with type may counteract information overload, allow focus and elegantly tell a story. With support from the Community Foundation for Ireland, artists Rowena Keaveny and Julie Spollen asked in an inclusive and creative manner… ‘What is the best way to clearly communicate necessary information?’
A project about communication, health literacy and expression, it produced artwork and postcards that are informed by participants during creative workshops. Anam Beo, Arts, Health and Wellbeing Organisation have been interacting and communicating with people of different abilities since 2005 with over 13,472 workshop attendances in the growing demographic of the over 55’s. Health Literacy; defined as the degree to which individuals can obtain, process, and understand basic health information and services needed to make appropriate decisions regarding their health.
