Matinée Outreach - Creative project for people living with dementia

Do you live with dementia, or care for someone living with dementia? Have you felt socially isolated and not comfortable using online technologies? Have you been frustrated over lockdown by the lack of activities you can do, and missed learning and trying new things?

As we find ourselves in another lengthy lockdown this is an invitation to take part in something creative and new from the safety of your own home.

Live & Local: LivingRoom

 

A series of micro-commissions for artists to engage with communities throughout the East and West Midlands.

Background:
Live & Local artists are welcomed into village halls - the ‘living room’ of a rural community - to perform for and to be treated as a member of that community while they are visiting. Live & Local: LivingRoom takes this concept as its starting point and we are inviting artists to submit proposals to remotely engage with communities in their actual living rooms.
