Individuals living with memory loss and caregivers are invited to participate in this FREE intergenerational program, in partnership with the University of Washington Bothell (UWB) and SilverKite Community Arts! Taking place over six one-hour sessions on the phone and/or Zoom, UWB students will interview elders in an oral history project. These interviews — based on your stories, memories, and personal experiences — will inspire end-of-term performances by students, to be shared virtually during a final celebration of all participants.
Storytelling across Generations is designed for pairs of participants including a person living with memory loss and caregiver/care partner. We welcome adults at all stages of their dementia journey, though this program will be most accessible and engaging for those with early stage memory loss (ESML). Join us!
