Voices from the front line: care homes, dementia and Covid-19

Clare Mason (Dementia Care Trainer)
Dr Andrea Capstick (Associate Professor)
Based on original research carried out with the dementia workforce, Voices from the Frontline is a piece of verbatim theatre which tries to capture the experience of an unprecedented year. Weaving together the spoken words of those who were on the inside, it creates both a devastating picture of loss, and a moving tribute to the essential but largely unnoticed labour that kept our care homes running.
The performance will be followed by a panel Q&A about the making of Voices from the Frontline, what we need to learn from the coronavirus pandemic, and its legacy for the long-term dementia care

The living and the Dead: creative conversations between the past and the present

Aoife Sutton (PhD candidate)
Dr Karina Croucher (Associate Professor)
This session will discuss the use of funerary archaeology to inspire creative writing. Karina and Aoife will discuss death and dying and how engaging with historical and archaeological objects that portray death can help us talk about difficult subjects. Participants will also have the option to have a go at their own creative writing (no experience necessary).
