The first of four contemporary Art and Mental Health Talks, organised by the ARC research group with Plymouth Community Healthcare.
Eloise Malone discusses the vampire-like qualities of the "process versus product" debate; and shows how she has come to believe that artistic quality and cultural validity are core conditions for positive change in health/wellbeing arts programmes.

Eloise has 17 years’ experience in working through arts to create positive change for people, places and organisations, and has worked for a range of health, policing, community, heritage and education organisations.
