EastSide Arts becomes Dementia Friendly

Organised through the East Belfast Network Centre Dementia Friendly East Belfast is a group of community, voluntary and business organisations, as well as individuals, working together to make East Belfast a more welcoming place for people affected by dementia.

This year we are trying to make our festival dementia friendly by working alongside the Alzheimer Society to introduce dementia awareness training for our staff and volunteers.  Our staff and staff from the Strand Arts Centre will undertake this training which will increase their awareness and ability to better accommodate a wider variety of our festival audience.
