This workshop is part of ECA's Dementia Inclusive Series, a line-up of six free, creative, social enrichment programs for people experiencing memory loss, their care partners, families, and friends.
Interested students are asked to register for all six workshops in the series.
ECA is partnering with SilverKite Community Arts and the University of Washington to perform an evaluation of the Spring 2023 Dementia-Inclusive Workshop Series. Each workshop in the six-week series will be facilitated by a different community partner organization, and each will be evaluated for its effectiveness, both to improve future programming at ECA and to further research in the arts-in-health field. Students needing to miss a workshop are asked to notify ECA program leads ahead of time.
