Dancing with Dementia

student performer.jpgimg_4021Strike a Light-Arts & Heritage has been awarded a grant by the Trust for Developing Communities – Healthy Community Fund for a Brighton project called Dancing with Dementia.

We’ll be working with dementia sufferers in a care home in the city as a pilot project from December 2016 to Spring 2017 with a variety of music and performance and freelance practitioners.

Thanks to charity Jewish Care for hosting our visit.
