Many of us love theatre and the arts, but what happens when people who may have enjoyed theatre all their lives get dementia? What can be done to help them keep connected and involved in the cultural life of our communities? How can theatre continue to be an experience to be treasured?
As part of the ISBA 2016 conference, there is a series of early morning and lunchtime ‘Fringe’ events. These smaller, bespoke sessions are free for any delegate who is interested, but numbers will be limited, so please remember to book.
This session, “Forget Me Not – Unlocking the Potential of Theatre for Audiences with Dementia’, provides a unique opportunity to discover what 2 iconic theatres in Edinburgh are doing to support people with dementia and those who care for them to continue to enjoy the shared experience of theatre.
When: Wednesday 14th September – Breakfast Workshop: maximum 20 participants
Time: 8.30am – 9.15am
Venue: Festival Theatre Café, 13-29 Nicolson Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9FT

The workshop is hosted by Paul Hudson, Coordinator of the innovative “Forget me Not” project funded by the Life Changes Trust
