The Dementia Fiction Festival 2021 is the culmination of an AHRC-funded research project being carried out by a team of researchers at Queen’s University Belfast. All events are free and accessible online. All are welcome.
Please join us for the Dementia Fiction Festival 2021: two days of incredible performances, insightful presentations and important conversations as we explore questions raised by a recent research project at Queen’s University Belfast. Funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, the project investigates how the language of contemporary fiction represents the minds of characters with dementia. This festival/conference hybrid will bring together a unique mix of academics, writers, organisations, carers and people living with dementia to discuss how we write about dementia with honesty, imagination and integrity. All sessions will be available online, with plenty of opportunity for everyone to get involved with the conversation.
The festival is free and open to everyone, book your place here
