Dementia Awareness Day – Chapter Arts

The LAUGH project was invited to be a part of the Tinted Lens festival at Chapter in Cardiff.  The festival took place on Dementia Awareness Day, 17th May 2017 #DAW2017.

The event celebrated Dementia Awareness Week with Dementia Friendly screenings, theatre and drop-in craft workshops, a Virtual Reality experience and guest speakers.

We ran a ‘Hand i Pocket funshop’, inviting people to come along and create a sensory textile pocket for someone living with dementia.  During the day, many pockets were made either for a specific friend or family member, or to be donated to somebody with dementia.
