Enabling Festival 2019

What does dementia sound like?

 

The Enabling Festival (6-8 September 2019) is in its second run this year. Our focus is on sound (in the form of hearing), one of the five senses. Sound has significant impact on persons with dementia in terms of their quality of life.

 

This three-day community festival is a kaleidoscope of multidisciplinary activities in the areas of art, music, design, theatre, film, dance, medical forums and hands-on workshops. Through these programmes and activities, we hope to showcase the potentialities in enabling persons with dementia to enjoy a better quality of life.

 

The festival also shines a spotlight on caregivers, who are often the invisible heroes and provides possibilities for caregivers’ respite and solace through many interesting activities. There are many activities for caregivers such as Sharing Sessions, Meditation and Breathing workshops and even a Silent Disco Party, amongst many others.

 

This collaboration between Enable Asia, DesignSingapore Council, National Design Centre, OneMaker Group, Project We Forgot, Alzheimer’s Disease Association (ADA), ARUP, BLOXAS Architects and the support from Our Singapore Fund (OSF) and the Agency for Integrated Care (AIC) allows the second edition of the Enabling Festival to leverage on how design, art and technology can make an impact in enabling persons with dementia, their caregivers and improve the quality of their life as we aspire to be a dementia friendly community.

 

Date: 6 – 8 September 2019
Time: 11 am – 9pm
Venue : National Design Centre
Address : 111 Middle Road Singapore 188969
