NETPARK STORIES:  Garden of Remember

Sat 16 March

2pm

Suggested Ages:  15years and above

Created by a writer, artist and illustrator working with Tony, Alan and Eddie who have all lived with dementia and a group of young students from Westborough Primary School.  Garden of Remember takes audiences on a tour of stories and past loves remembered and told in fragments in this moving and uplifting work.  Experienced via audio through an iPad, the work is not verbatim but captures through poetic written text and performed words both the current lives and remembered past of all those who contributed.

Funded through NHS England and created through Metal and Southend Borough Councils partnership project, the NetPark Wellbeing Project.
