Created Out of Mind Director Sebastian Crutch will deliver the keynote talk at 'The Art of Dementia' Conference 2018, as part of Northern Ireland’s third annual Arts & Age Festival. The festival offers a month-long series of events highlighting the contribution that artists and arts organisations are making to the lives of their older citizens through the Arts & Older People Programme.
Seb will present our work to open up new conversations with the public about dementia, and highlight the experiences of people living with different, and lesser-known, dementias through as series of short film clips.
Joining Seb will be a range of leaders in the field revealing how they work with people living with dementias through a range of arts-based activities. There will be interactive workshops to facilitate discussion and debate around the experience of those delivering art workshops and what it means for the participants.
The conference is aimed at policy makers, health agencies, artists, arts organisations and those working in the fields of arts and older people.
