Garage Museum of Contemporary Art and the Cultural and Education section of the British Embassy in Moscow start accepting applications to take part in the Early-Stage Dementia Awareness training, developed by the British organization Arts4Dementia.
Organized as part of the Museum's inclusive program and the UK – Russia Creative Bridge 2021–2022 international program, the training is a preparatory stage for working with elder people diagnosed with dementia. Participants will acquire general information about the different types of dementia and their impact on the physical and emotional state of a person; they will learn the basics of communication with people with early-stage dementia and their carers, as well as various art therapy techniques.
Workers of cultural institutions and specialized nonprofit organizations that seek to develop programs for working with people with early-stage dementia are invited to take part. The workshop will be delivered by Arts4Dementia specialists.
