Thanks to funding from Arts Council England, Worcester City Council, Redditch Borough Council, Wyre Forest District Council, The Elmley Foundation, Severn Arts, Museums Worcestershire and Worcestershire County Council we are able to deliver reminiscence and drama sessions to people living with dementia and their carers in Worcester, Wyre Forest and Redditch for 7 months from January to July 2021. Phase one will be with 3 care homes and we hope phase 2 and 3 will be delivered in the community at local museums. We will also be working with 9 Primary schools at Keystage 2 to interview the older people and also create new short films based on the memories collected. These films will be shown at a live You Tube event. We also hope to work with drama students from Worcester University that will be mentored through the process. Vamos Theatre will also be offering ‘Listening With Your Eyes’ training for all involved.
If you are a care home in Worcestershire then please contact Jenny Davis 07946 585978 firstname.lastname@example.org to book for phase 1. See leaflet for care homes here
