This inter-generational project invites the Riverland community into the world of aged care and dementia through a multi art form project which aims to raise awareness of the isolation experienced by many aged care residents unable to connect with their broader community.
Sound producer DJ TR!P, performance artist Jessica Foster and dancer Tanya Voges will join forces with local photographer Terry Marter, in a ten week residency that will bring students from Renmark Primary School into the Renmark Paringa Aged Care Unit, to explore the power of music to provoke memory in those with dementia. A multi-artform exhibition where old and new technology merge, will celebrate the new memories created.
Flinders University will be conducting research and evaluating outcomes of the project.
