Community & Dementia Conference

On World Alzheimer Day, Jon & Paula had a moving and inspiring day sharing the project with 300 people at Life Changes Trust’s first  Community & Dementia Conference in Perth. 

From the insightful opening and wonderful hosting by Agnes Houston, through the words of carers and people living with dementia, through the inspiring sharing of ideas of fellow awardees and through our own sessions, where Maggie’s film enthralled along with John’s wonderful talk on oral tradition and hand memory and Paula’s sharing of the fantastic island voices we are privileged to hear, it was a brilliant but exhausting day catching up with everyone and we really did deserve that beer/mojito at the end of the day! 

Paula only cried once…at the Gie it Laldy performance.
