A foundation for arts facilitators looking to learn about working creatively with people living with dementia.
Beyond Dementia is a Collection Centre exhibition that explores the lived experience of dementia, looking beyond the condition and highlighting the positives. The exhibition is curated by the Fabulous Forgetful Friends, a group based in Manchester organised by charity Together Dementia Support. The aim of the exhibition and its accompanying public programme is to explore and support active citizenship for these individuals as the producers of the exhibition, allowing a unique approach to better understanding. It looks at how we work with those living dementia, rather than working for, and focuses on living beyond the disease.
This early-stage dementia awareness session will be delivered for Arts 4 Dementia (A4D) by a Dementia Pathfinders trainer Olivia McLennan, with dementia friendly arts venue and arts workshop guidance for dementia from Veronica Franklin Gould A4D founder and director of the Reawakening - Living Well with Dementia in Dorset 2017 programme. There will be opportunities for sharing practice and ideas.
