Music as an intervention to prevent or delay dementia
You are cordially invited to participate in an event about and with music on Friday Oct 7 14:00-18:00. This event will have several components: seminar, music, workshop and mingle components. The purpose is to explore music as a potential new research field at ARC, develop research ideas, and to establish collaboration with experts in music from the Royal College of Music and with persons who work with music as a tool in elderly care and dementia care. We also hope that colleagues from Demenscentrum and Äldrecentrum will join and share their experiences and ideas and thus that this event will attract people from different disciplines and institutions, that this mix will contribute to identify creative and innovative research ideas that can be further explored and developed.
As there will be refreshments, we need to know if you will attend or not. We will be in the big seminar room on floor 8, so we also need to make sure that all fit. If more sign up than we can accommodate, the earliest birds win. Please register by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
