SANDBAG, in partnership with Tiina Alinen Projects and the support of Brisbane City Council, brings you ‘Dementia Hero’ workshops
Dementia Hero is for people living with dementia and those who love someone, living with dementia. The workshop program has been designed collaboratively with people with dementia, to make it truly dementia friendly. It offers non-verbal communication through movement and includes socialisation as well as moderate physical exercise.
Tiina Alinen (http://www.tiinaalinen.com.au) is a local resident who has 35 years professional dance experience in Queensland, across Australia and internationally. Her diverse career as a performance maker, performer, project manager, educator and researcher within theater, cultural and health contexts, has led her to create numerous community dance projects. Tiina Alinen Projects embrace programs which champion the inclusion of all, for the benefit of all.
Cost: $15:00 per participants for 2 hour workshops ( $30 per couple). The workshop is for both the person living with dementia and the support person. The fee includes morning tea.
