To mark world Alzheimer’s Month, the Global Brain Health Institute (GBHI) is hosting a webinar on 6 September in collaboration with Veronica Franklin Gould, president of Arts 4 Dementia.
‘Co-creating arts for brain health – a global perspective’ will showcase the diverse creative activities of Atlantic Fellows for Equity in Brain Health at GBHI that have been co-produced with and for people living with dementia, generating powerful messages of hope, engagement, inclusion and connection.
Chaired by Professor Brian Lawlor, Deputy Executive Director of GBHI (University of California, San Francisco / Trinity College Dublin), the webinar will feature five 10-minute presentations from Atlantic Fellows, followed by a panel discussion of experts in arts & brain health, social prescribing and transdisciplinary approaches for people living with dementia.
Who is this webinar for?
If your work involves arts for health or creative ageing, social prescribing, dementia prevention, arts for people affected by dementia or you wish to extend your programmes for early-stage dementia to people at the very onset – keen to preserve their cultural interests – or are already running such programmes for individuals and family partners and wish to know more about the social prescribing referral route to literary opportunities, this webinar shares insights, progress and learning from international experts.
