It has been a busy start to the autumn season with a number of workshops and private tutorials taking place throughout Ireland – the most recent at An Cultúrlann McAdam Ó Fiach on the Falls Road, Belfast.

As a converted Presbyterian Hall, An Cultúrlann is a creative and cultural hub for the west of the city and was the perfect location for an Art For The Senses Workshop for staff of Action Cancer.

Art For The Senses workshop at An Cultúrlann in Belfast September 2019

It was a very powerful session and some very positive interaction from across all of the participants resulting in some memorable discussion from across the group, moments of reflection and introspection – and of course an outpouring of creativity – in some instances that which was latent or dormant.

Testimonial from participant at An Cultúrlann:

“I had a great time – I am surrounded by art most of the time as it is my husbands business. I showed him my piece of art that I produced today and it is in his study on an easel. I had a very peaceful time tins afternoon. I loved it so much. Can’t wait to meet up with you again and use oils. Thank you Geralyn for sharing your gift with me.”


“Art For the Senses” is a made-for business programme of workshops, presenting art as an ‘intervention’ and ‘therapy’ for those businesses and organisations who value the well-being of their employees and who seek to create an emotionally healthy environment for everyone.
