I gained a different outlook on attitude towards engaging with those with dementia. I feel very motivated and re-energised about my work. Having been to many workshops (so feel that I am qualified to say) I thought it was fantastic, it was inspirational and uplifting (which was a surprise). The format of the day worked really well and Aubrey was a humorous, engaging and an extremely knowledgeable speaker and [the A4D workshop] insights were invaluable too. It was fantastic to meet so many like minded people from such varied artistic practices and backgrounds. It was a thoroughly enlightening day. Refreshments Tea and coffee will be available on arrival and in morning and afternoon breaks. You are welcome to bring a packed lunch or you can purchase lunch at nearby shops and cafes. ------------------------------------------------------------------- Training provided by Dementia Pathfinders Arts 4 Dementia is facilitating the training which will be provided by Dementia Pathfinders.
