The participatory project LEBENSWELTEN (“LIVING WORLDS”) approaches the subject of dementia through the mediums of art and design. Workshops at Kardinal-Rauscher-Platz will aim to demonstrate the similarities, synergies and connections between people with and without dementia, to awaken empathy and connect to a language of understanding and coexistence. With the help of design objects and unconventional communication strategies, new approaches to the topic of dementia will be facilitated.
