Dementia DEMO MEMO | 29 May 2019 at 4

The exhibition 'The Collection (1), Highlights for a Future' is the occasion for a series of conversations about the strongly changing role of museums within communities. In this talk show, attention is paid to persons with dementia.


S.M.A.K. regularly organizes meetings for people with dementia in collaboration with The Courage To Grow Old. This way people with dementia, together with their partner or caregiver can visit S.M.A.K. in a very casual way. This visit stimulates multiple senses: there is music, people watch, listen, talk… We engage in conversation with Bie Hinnekint, the driving force behind Demo Memo and Gudrun from 'het Ventiel', a buddy operation for people with young dementia.

S.M.A.K. Moves - Talk shows


The exhibition 'The Collection (1), Highlights for a Future' is the occasion for a series of discussions about the strongly changing role of museums within communities. Whereas in the past museums mainly worked from an art-historical perspective, attention is now shifting to social relevance and the role that the public plays in this. The museum also takes on new tasks: it actively seeks to connect with society and at times moves towards socio-cultural work. Katleen Vermeulen (Amarant) receives various partners of the S.M.A.K. Moves programme, the educational and guide work, in five talk shows. This includes, among other things, the structural effect of S.M.A.K. on projects with prisoners, refugees, people with dementia, young people and children.
