This event is part of a three-part series of talks and workshops being held for the 2024 Festival of Inclusion in Dun Laoghaire and all are welcome to attend.

These talks, curated and facilitated by Mike Hanrahan, Global Atlantic Fellow for Equity in Brain Health at the Global Brain Health Institute, Trinity College Dublin (TCD) will feature neuroscientists, psychologists, researchers, people with dementia and their carers, people with acquired brain injury, brain health activists and creative artists who work to improve brain health.

They will explore how art, singing, music, dance, poetry and writing can stimulate your senses and improve cognition. There is always a special welcome for people living with dementia and people with acquired brain injury and their caregivers at each session.
