During Dementia Action Week, artist and support worker Katryn Saqui will introduce her pilot ‘DaDaMentia Clinic’ which is a temporary participatory art installation. This has been developed to offer new ways of experiencing dementia by providing unexpected treatments and remedies to draw out positive attitudes towards a dementia in unusual ways. These include dispensing a vaccine against boredom, a linguistic disposal unit and a fortified tonic, all aimed specifically to break down perceived barriers around behaviours, mobility, speech and memory.
