Artful Dementia Research Lab is the operational unit for the research project Artful Dementia that had its origin in 2015. The idea that dementia might be something else than what everybody seemed to believe grew out of new knowledge about the entanglements of arts and dementia. Now, nearly eight years later, we know much more about these entanglements and how they might produce dementia and life with dementia differently. In this event we take stock of the knowledge we have produced and invite interested parties to learn and discuss with us.
The event can be followed online, but audience is also welcome to join us physically at the Centre for Women's and Gender Studies, Breiviklia, UiT.
