As the Bloomsbury Festival in a Box Project moves towards its dissemination stages, we are opening up the ‘archives of engagement’ that have developed over the course of the project via a number of outlets. The first of these is a knowledge share day at the School of Advanced Study, which will bring together leading practitioners in arts and health and dementia, alongside researchers and artists associated with the Festival in a Box project and representatives from Age UK Camden. The day aims to provide an environment in which the lessons learned from our project can be contextualized in relation to both established and emerging interventions in this field.
The event will be held on Thursday May 1st 2014, Senate House, University of London 10am – 4pm. Alongside members of the project team and associated artists from the Bloomsbury Festival, we will welcome the following guest speakers:
- Professor Geoffrey Crossick (School of Advanced Study), Director of the AHRC’s Cultural Value Project.
- Veronica Franklin Gould, Founder & Chief executive, Arts 4 Dementia
- Professor Justine Schneider (University of Nottingham), on ‘Inside Out of Mind’
- Dr Helen Chaterjee, University College London, ‘Heritage in Hospitals’
- Representatives from Dulwich Picture Gallery’s ‘Good Times’ programme
The speakers represent a cross-section of leading projects examining the value of cultural activity broadly, and specifically in relation to those living with dementia.
Please join us:
The event is free and open to all, and a lunch and refreshments will be included. Whilst all are welcome, however, there is limited capacity for this event. For further details, and to book a place, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
