The Dementia Fiction Festival will take place at Accidental Theatre, Shaftesbury Square, Belfast on Wednesday 15th and Thursday 16th September 2021.
The festival is organised by the Dementia Fiction project at Queen’s University Belfast, a project which investigates how the language of contemporary fiction represents the minds of characters with dementia.
The festival will include keynotes, panels, workshops and readings. Writers, academics, people living with dementia and umbrella organisations will all be coming together for this important conversation, and the organisers hope many of you will join them too, either in person or online. Unfortunately due to Covid restrictions, there’ll be limited availability for in person places at the festival but all the sessions will be accessible online.
Further information and booking details to come. For now, please save the date. You can find out more about the Dementia Fiction project by following on Twitter @FictionDementia or visiting the project website https://blogs.qub.ac.uk/dementiafiction/
