‘Tending Joy’ - An Exhibition of Prints by UCC's First Year Occupational Therapy Students 

Opened 7th February 2024 - closed 12th April 

Since the foundation of the profession in 1917 and influenced by social movements including the Arts and Crafts Movement, art, craft and creative activities have played a central role in Occupational Therapy.

To explore this heritage and to examine first-hand the potential therapeutic power of creative activities, UCC’s first year Occupational Therapy students have an opportunity to participate in creative activities in module OT1005 Creative Occupations and Health, designed and led by Dr. Eithne Hunt in collaboration with Cork Printmakers.

The theme for this year’s creative sessions and exhibition is ‘Tending Joy’. In their creative sessions, the students were encouraged to reflect on how they experience and cultivate joy in the big and small moments of their daily lives.

The exhibition was opened by Odhrán Allen, CEO of the Association of Occupational Therapists of Ireland.
