Description

Dementia Friends Information Session

Suitable for artists working or planning to work with people living with Dementia in Corby.

The first hour of the workshop will be the Dementia Friends Information Session, led by Made in Corby's Producer and Dementia Friends Champion, Vicky. You will learn more about dementia and how you can help to create Dementia friendly communities.

Becoming a Dementia Friend simply means finding out more about how Dementia affects a person – and then, armed with this understanding, doing small everyday things that help. For example, being patient in a shop queue, or spending time with someone you know who’s living with Dementia.

The final half hour of the workshop will include an opportunity for discussion and Q&A about working in Dementia friendly settings from an arts practitioner point of view, whether delivering movement, dance, music or crafts to name a few.

Please note that this is not specific training for working in Dementia settings but will help to prepare you to deliver arts activities by creating more awareness of dementia.
