The Dot Collective

We provide professional, pop-up theatre and creative workshops to those who are socially isolated, and have little to no access to the arts. Our work travels to care communities in the South East, in particular but not limited to those living with dementia, the elderly and disabilities.

1. Action Plan

1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?

We value the contribution to creating theatre from those living with dementia through our workshops that are carried out nationally. We work with local authorities to provide a diverse activities that are affordable in their care centres. We encourage families to share the experience with their loved one living with dementia.

2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?

A challange is creating theatre that is stimulating for all those living with dementia and to keep the productions as diverse as possible.
