With Many Voices is a scheme devised by the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi for people with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers.
The scheme is run by the Fondazione’s Education Department in conjunction with expert geriatric educators.
With Many Voices offers people living with dementia the chance to express themselves through art, proposing a model for communication that is still possible. Encouraging participants to resort to their imagination rather than their memory, to their creativity rather than their logical and cognitive capabilities, optimises each person’s capacity for communication. The scheme, which is open to families and healthcare homes alike, consists of cycles of encounters both in front of exhibits in the exhibition and in the Maria Manetti Shrem Educational Center.Discover more about the project With Many Voices
For the Olafur Eliasson: Nel tuo tempo exhibition, the scheme will consist of activities organised in cycles of encounters, soliciting active participation on the part of those living with dementia and of their carers.
