Tomorrow starts my American adventure, as I have been awarded an AHRC grant to spend a month exploring innovative practices in the field of Arts & Dementia in the USA. The journey will start in NYC, observing poetry workshops led by Gary Glazner and training at the Creative Center Training Institute for Artists and Administrators. I will then fly to Oxford, Ohio, for two exciting weeks at Miami University and with Opening Minds Through Arts. The trip will conclude by a week in Milwaukee, the home of TimeSlips and Drama Practitioner Anne Basting, where I will explore drama and intergenerational practices.
I will be posting regularly during my trip so watch this space…!
