WORKSHOPSIN SCHOOLS

As part of workshops that the DEMEDARTS team, consisting of artists, designers and musicians, have developed, questions about dementia are collected together with students in the secondary school and their own level of knowledge is checked. Afterwards, workshops are designed that deal artistically with one's own feelings, cognitive abilities and memories in the context of dementia. 

We work with haptic objects, performance, movement, language and sound.

 

The students not only strengthen their empathy and understanding of dementia, but also acquire analog and digital skills.

CITY WALKS

Art researchers, prospective art and music teachers, schoolchildren, people with dementia and relatives wander through their favorite places in their residential area in Vienna together. The project, adapted from Schöner's 'Favorite Places' (Buschkühle 2003: 13-18), intends a mindful, empathetic approach to people with dementia. This is about empathic perception of feelings in relation to people, voices and noises in known and no longer known rooms as well as in the neighborhood.
