Art against memory-loss laboratory. IX Seminar of Art and Social Inclusion

Dec 12, 2019

Thousands of cases of dementia are diagnosed every day, and most of them involve Alzheimer’s. In Spain alone, an estimated 400,000 people are affected by the disease and, due to the ageing population, this number could reach 650,000 by 2030. These morning and afternoon sessions will connect art and memory, and professionals from the culture sector will offer participants tools that they can employ in their professional life.

The Art against memory-loss laboratory. Art experiences linked to cognitive degeneration is designed for people who work in the museum and culture sectors, the health sector, cultural and social administrators, experts in development cooperation and social actors, as well as people already affected by cognitive decline and their carers and families. Limited number of places available.
