While the Music Lasts: A symposium on music and dementia – 20 September
Music for Life is a project pioneering and developing interactive workshops for people with dementia. This symposium presents the findings of a research project undertaken by the Lifelong Learning in Music & the Arts Research Group at Hanze University, Groningen on the practice of Music for Life. The research, which has a particular focus on the perspective of the musicians who work on the project, will be presented from 10am – 11.30am (open for general booking through the box office). This will be followed by practical music and reflective practice sessions with experts in the field, which can be booked through the Learning department on 020 7258 8240.
All sessions are free, but advance booking is essential
Music for Life was founded by Linda Rose in 1993 in association with Jewish Care and an expanding team of musicians. It is now managed by Wigmore Hall in partnership with Dementia UK.
