We’re excited to be teaming up with Cheltenham’s Everyman Theatre, to work on a new dementia-friendly project called ‘What’s Your Story?’
The project will connect our residents and others living in care homes across
Gloucestershire with local schools and educational groups and explore how the arts can help those living with dementia. It will also bring together different age groups and local neighbourhoods to develop dementia-friendly communities across the county.
The Everyman has been running a series of pilot sessions at Wentworth Court and we look forward to more workshops in 2017 culminating in a community-sharing event at a central Cheltenham venue in late Spring.
“We are delighted to be working with Wentworth Court on this project which will enable us to help improve the quality of life for those living with dementia. Their support and expertise is crucial to the success of this venture.”
Everyman Theatre Chief Executive, Geoffrey Rowe
