We spent three exciting days in Bergen thanks to the support of the EEA Grants. We collaborated with the colleagues from the drama department of the Western Norway University. We had the opportunity to observe the Girl in the Attic, a theatre in education program for elderly people with dementia, that was created in the process of an earlier collaboration. Besides observing the program we also worked together with the creators on possibilities of developing the program.
The Girl in the Attic is a very special program developed especially for elderly people with dementia. We had the chance of observing the program with three different groups in various homes for elderly people.
We discussed the possibilities of developing the program in new directions , offering advice based on our experience with different target groups.
This program was realised with the support of the EEA Grants, as part of project number HU07-0009-C2-2017.
