The Dementia Fiction Project at Queen’s University Belfast invites you to save the date of their Dementia Fiction Festival. The festival will take place at Accidental Theatre, Shaftesbury Square, Belfast on Wednesday 15th and Thursday 16th September 2021 and will also be available online.

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.

Events 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. 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, the team invites you to save the date. You can find out more about the Dementia Fiction project by following on Twitter @FictionDementia or visiting the project website
