Would you like to contribute to the future of research in the field of dance for dementia? Are you interested in engaging in dance activities? Are you a person living with dementia, carer, family member, dancer, dance organisation, researcher, policy maker or student? Then this is the project for you.
CREATE Dance for Dementia is a partnership between the Edinburgh Centre for Research on the Experience of Dementia (ECRED), Scottish Ballet and Dance Base (Scotland’s National Centre for Dance). It is a one-year project seeking to co-create a research agenda to facilitate equitable dance for dementia. The project is funded by the Royal Society of Edinburgh.
The partnership is holding its first workshop in-person on Thursday 23rd March 2023 at the Edinburgh Festival Theatre (13-29 Nicolson St, Edinburgh EH8 9FT). If you are a person living with dementia, a carer or family member, dance organisation, dancer, researcher, policy maker or student, they would love you to join them. The workshop will include a free lunch. For people living with dementia a fee of £100 for their time will be paid, as well as reasonable travel expenses.
