Whether you are looking for inspiration in a museum, a community or a care setting there is a wide range of engaging and effective ways in which drama and the creative arts can be used in memory work.
Pam Schweitzer (http://www.pamschweitzer.com) is an acclaimed theatre director, writer, lecturer and trainer who has devoted much of her career to developing and championing reminiscence arts and oral history work, not just in this country but around the world.
She runs creative projects and training schemes involving all sorts of people, from theatre groups and students to community volunteers and family carers.
Reminiscence Network East members have an opportunity to join Pam at one of two workshop days for a practical taste of how this kind of activity can be used to engage people and enrich their lives.
In the tradition of our RNE annual SHARE-sponsored training days, there is no attendance charge for members. Teas and coffees will be provided, but please bring your own packed lunch as we will only be taking a short break.
You will receive an insight into ways that drama, music and the visual arts can become an enriching part of the reminiscence experience – and don’t worry, you don’t need to be an aspiring Oscar winner to attend
