Event: The Purple List a gay dementia venture

After booking you'll be sent a link to watch the play on Youtube and should then join us for the live Q&A on 23rd.

 

It is a 35 minute, one-man play. It opens on Sam and Derek’s wedding day and goes on to explore the highs and lows of their lives as Derek’s dementia progresses.

 

Told from Sam’s point of view, the play is a touching, sad, yet often funny, insight into the lives of these two gay men as they navigate their way through the care system and the changes in their personal relationship. A stand-alone piece of theatre that can also be used as a training tool in a range of issues regarding dementia and diversity for those working in social care and for those caring for, or involved with people living with dementia.

 

The play hopes to raise awareness around the potential issues for those caring for someone with dementia in general, and the barriers to support which members of the gay community may perceive and experience. If you'd like to know more have a look on the website purplelisttheatre

This a film version of The Purple List, which will be accompanied by a live digital Q&A on 23rd September

Event: Asha Neighbourhood Project

We will  invite older and younger women in the community to bring some picnic food that represents their country of birth, race and ethnicity and wear traditional outfits to celebrate Age Proud. The  picnic in the park will give an opportunity for the older people to learn and create memories with a younger group to them.

 
We aim to celebrate the diversity of older people and to support everyone to overcome the barriers to their full inclusion and participation in our activity. The walk and picnic in the park will give an opportunity for the older people to learn and create memories with a younger peer group members.

 

The younger women will befriend the older women and keep the conversations flowing. Help them if they struggle to walk. Give them company if they cannot walk with the group. This will give them the time to reflect, relieve, and reassess their life, contributing to their mental and physical well-being. Improve social skills, family and friends and near neighbourhood relationships.
