The Enabling Festival 2022Organised by: Enable Asia
Performed by: Various Artists
The Enabling Festival 2022 opens on 23 September 2022 at the National Gallery Singapore, with the key programme focus on the theme of Touch. COVID-19 has created a world of isolation and disrupted a fixed routine that many persons living with dementia live by. The lack of social and physical interaction has inevitably increased the burden and stress of caregiving. Too often we have underestimated the power of touch and its potential to heal when words become cumbersome. The festival aims to remind participants that touch is memory and is where we begin our journey to communicate, through a series of thought-provoking and engaging festival programmes. Visitors can expect to learn practical skills and ideas to help close the gap, as well as real life experiences of persons living with dementia and their caregivers.
