A workshop on telling stories for and with older people and people living with dementia.
Facilitated by storyteller Liz Weir, this workshop aims to show how storytelling can effectively promote inter-generational activity, preserve memories, improve self esteem and value the memories and contribution of older members of our community. It links the past, present and future. The presentation will be inter-active and practical. Liz Weir recently received an MBE for her work with storytelling and older people. A great opportunity to tap in to her expertise. Limited capacity, early booking advised.
Venue: Arklow Library
This workshop is presented by Wicklow County Council Library Services in association with Mermaid Arts Centre as part of YARN Storytelling Festival.
