Artful Minds - artist training in dementia-focused practice
Artful Minds is a one-day experiential training initiative for artists of all art forms, which uses a multi-arts approach to focus on what it is like to experience challenges associated with dementia and old age. It aims to increase skills, confidence, influence creative responses, as well as giving ideas for translation into artistic practice. Artful Minds is aimed at professional artists who are looking to create work specifically for people living with dementia, to gain a first insight or deepen their engagement with people living with dementia.
The workshop is created and delivered by Magdalena Schamberger, an independent creative collaborator, director, teaching artist and theatre maker with a special interest in developing high quality performances with and for people living with dementia, their loved ones and those who care for them. Lunch is included in the cost of the day, and further resources will be provided for artists to take home.

We have a small number of bursaries available to offer reduced-rate workshop places to those for whom the cost of attendance is a barrier. Please advise Dawn on email@example.com if you would like to apply for one of these and she can offer more information.
