The Scottish Football Reminiscence Partnership Public Conference is an event to share the findings and celebrate the success of the AHRC & SFC funded Knowledge Exchange Project.
"Harnessing the Heritage of Football: Creating Meaningful Activities and Therapeutic Work with People with Dementia."
This novel project has demonstrated the potential of football focussed reminiscence, creatively exploring how a fusion between cultural heritage, scientific insights, design and performing arts can benefit and improve the lives of people with dementia and their family carers.
The event will include talks, a Knowledge Exchange Cafe, the premier of "I left my heart" a dramatic piece based on our findings by playwright and broadcaster Padraig Coyle, performed in the Scottish national Football Museum. Other highlights include a demonstration of an interactive prototype digital 'Memory Cube' deigned by collaborators at Northumbria University and Quilting Memories.
