Down where all our roads end- Participatory film making with women living in long-term dementia care
Location: Leeds City Gallery, Henry Moore Room
Date and Time:
Wed 22 Oct 2014, 10:30 - 11:30
Andrea Capstick and Katherine Ludwin of Bradford Dementia Group will be presenting an interactive workshop at the Leeds Love Arts Festival on 22nd October.
Eileen grew up in a Leeds children’s home and went on to become a prize-winning cycle racer. Lily has fond memories of Holbeck and loves to sing. Rita met her husband-to-be at the Mecca-Locarno in Leeds Arcade.
What all three women now have in common is that they live in a local care facility for people with dementia.
You will see three short films, one made with each of them, to show how much Eileen, Lily and Rita still have to tell us about life, love, humour and survival.
The films being screened are part of a larger study which investigated the use of a film-making approach called Participatory Video (PV) with people with dementia living in long-term care. The study aimed to find out what impact PV had on social participation and well-being for this group of people.
