Camerata Project, Manchester

A collaborative project was set up between the Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester, the Camerata and with myself (incorporating my iPad engAGE Practice)...not to mention Shore Green (an independant living facility in Wythenshawe). This was a Pilot Project to understand how digital art and music can be combined to create a finished piece, developed by individuals with Dementia.

We facilitated three workshops each (The Camerata and Myself) but due to the time constraint it wasn't possible to develop a coherant relationship between the two art forms which made sense for the individuals and therefore we kept them seperate. They worked really well and through evaluative feedback we aware of the next steps if the project is developed further.

As part of this project, a film was developed to record its process. Watch this space! I will add it on shortly when it has been edited!
