Health-seeker / Map-maker

Health-seeker / Map-maker was created especially for Arts & Health South West as a part of the UKPHA Forum 2010, held at the Bournemouth International Conference centre.

Health-Seeker is a map that privileges the ear over the eye. It is at once a historical record and a subjective representation of what is going on in the country. It is what each user wishes it to be and it is ever growing, ever changing and totally interactive.

The purpose of this map is to explore and create an ongoing dialog regarding your experience specific to the arts and health. We welcome your input into this map and details on how you can record your own soundbite can be found on the recording page.

What kinds of projects are happening in arts and health across the UK?

With Health-Seeker, you can zoom, pan and search for people talking about their projects with interactive satellite photos or detailed maps of their area. Click on hot spots to listen to the recorded sounds of a location based on gps tracking.

Do zoom into the map, as you will find many projects overlap in our cities. You will only see one or two projects in the default view of seeing the whole of the UK. While zooming in will open up many more projects.
