A workshop for people with dementia and carers
Venue: Haus der Barmherzigkeit, Seeböckgasse Vienna.
Performed in the period from March to June 2017
Cornelia Bast takes her haptic preferences set to people in a nursing home.
This workshop is about materials that feel good or interesting right now.
The personal preferences are then put together to a feeling-object. What do the objects of the other workshop participants look like and how do they feel like?
The goal of the art action is to activate and train the haptic perception.
Nonverbal communication is intended to facilitate and promote the interaction between participants even in advanced status of dementia.
