Seminar: Reminiscence and programs for adults living with dementia at museums
25. april 2017
Results from five European Open Air Museums
Open-air museums function as great environments with their ability to present complete settings of the past and involving all of our senses, which creates good conditions for lifelong learning.
Five open-air museums in Europe all work with reminiscence, based on cultural
heritage – objects, photos, buildings, smell, taste and meaningful activities such as knitting, baking, music and gardening. By connecting to the participants’ backgrounds by using objects from the region where they grew up, or objects they remember from their youth, there is a personal connection for the participants.
Since 2014, the five museums and three universities have been a part of the Erasmus+ program ‘Active Ageing and Heritage in Adult Learning’ (abbreviated AHA). The AHA project has evaluated the effects of heritage reminiscence activities at the involved museums and developed them further.
The result will be presented together with best practice to inspire and help other
museums that wish to work with these methods. The project has also produced courses for carers and relatives.
During the seminar in Den Gamle By, the project’s partners will present the results from the Erasmus+ project. The seminar is aimed at people who work with elderly people suffering from dementia within museums, the nursing sector or academic research.
The seminar will be in English.
