    Artful Minds - artist training in dementia-focused practice

    Date Friday 5 July, 2019

    Time 9:30am to 4:30pm

    Venue Macrobert Arts Centre, University of Stirling, Stirling, UK [View on Google Maps]

    Artful Minds is a one-day experiential training initiative for artists of all art forms, which uses a multi-arts approach to focus on what it is like to experience challenges associated with dementia and old age. It aims to increase skills, confidence, influence creative responses, as well as giving ideas for translation into artistic practice. Artful Minds is aimed at professional artists who are looking to create work specifically for people living with dementia, to gain a first insight or deepen their engagement with people living with dementia. The workshop is created and delivered by Magdalena Schamberger, an independent creative collaborator, director, teaching artist and theatre maker with a special interest in developing high quality performances with and for people living with dementia, their loved ones and those who care for them. To book a space, please email Kathryn.welch@macrobertartscentre.org.

    Curious Shoes (morning performance)

    Date Saturday 6 July, 2019

    Time 11:00am to 12:30pm

    Venue Macrobert Arts Centre, University of Stirling, Stirling, UK [View on Google Maps]

    Curious Shoes is a joyful performance for people living with dementia and their loved ones to share. This funny, entertaining and beautifully simple story comes to life through live music, movement and very few words. The audience is invited on a curious voyage of discovery by four performers loosely based on film characters for whom shoes play an important role: Fred Astaire in Funny Face; Bette Davis in Now Voyager; Charlie Chaplin in City Lights and Vicky Page in The Red Shoes. Curious Shoes premiered at Festival Theatre Studio in Edinburgh 2017 and we are delighted to bring the performance to audiences across Scotland.

    Curious Shoes has been created by Magdalena Schamberger, former Artistic Director of Hearts and Minds. Magdalena is a creative collaborator, director, teacher and theatre maker with a special interest in developing performances with and for people living with dementia, their loved ones and those who care for them.

    “ I feel like I am shining inside.” - Audience member, 2017
