Dialogue Arts and Health is delighted to confirm the appointment of curator Annette Moloney as Artist Liaison to curate the Dialogue Series in Galway, Limerick, Offaly, Cavan and the national exchange day in South Dublin County in December.

Dialogue Arts and Health is funded by the Arts Council of Ireland and managed by Arts & Health Coordinators Ireland partnering the Association of Local Authority Arts Officers, with contribution from Create, Helium, Waterford Healing Arts Trust, the Arts Initiative in Mental Health Sligo/Leitrim, West Cork Arts Centre, St. Patrick's University Hospital, Dublin and the National Centre for Arts and Health at The Adelaide and Meath Hospital, Incorporating the National Children's Hospital. 

Annette Moloney is a curator and collaborator based in Limerick whose curatorial practice includes talks and writing, particularly on art in slack spaces and the development of alternative art projects in vacant city centre spaces; exhibitions; artists peer critiques; mentoring and public art commissions. More than anything she tries to retain an artist centred and idea centred approach to her work. Most recently she worked as a project manager at the Irish Pavilion at the 53rd Venice Biennale, as Artistic Director of Clare County Council’s Public Art Programme and as Public Art Specialist with the Arts Council of Ireland.
