The Puppet Portal Project is an arts in health and technology project. It builds on phase 1 of the project which was based in Dublin. Phase 2 engages 5 artists in 5 hospitals across the country to establish an active and creative hub within each hospital community, facilitating a performing arts exchange between the hospitals. Contemporary puppetry techniques storytelling and technology will be used to create interactive, puppetry performances via the hospital web portal, SOLAS. The artists will engage in discussion with and work in collaboration with the hospital school teachers and hospital play specialist. Artists will benefit from the expertise in the technology, facilitated by the Centre for Health Informatics, Trinity College . Artists will also be supported through the expertise of Kids Own Publishing (project collaborator).
