The Many Rounds Of The Merry-Go-Round

The many rides of the merry-go-round is a one-day workshop designed for people in day centres or aged care facilities, suffering from dementia and Alzheimer’s or affected by any senile condition. The workshop uses creativity as a tool to reach marginalized people of the community to give another chance of joy in life.

People that are experiencing memory loss or people that are having some difficulty in communicating and therefore at risk of isolation, are in need of finding ways of expressing their thoughts, emotions or simply engaging in an activity of pleasure.

This workshop offers four different activities:

  • Theatre improvisation
  • Dance
  • Body Percussions
  • Painting

Every activity will be a new journey: A new ride on a merry-go-round – that simple joy of being there at just that moment.
