Aviva Stadium, Dublin 4.
On 11th October, IACAT exhibited at the Mental Health and Wellbeing Summit which took place at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin. The Summit is the only event of it's kind in Ireland and was a wonderful opportunity to showcase our work and promote the Creative Arts Therapies. We had lots of interest from both the public and mental health professionals and we look forward to taking part in similar events in the future. Thank you to all those who took the time to call by our stand and to Council who manned our exhibit for the day.
