Songwriting Works returns to Edmonds this April!
On April 7-8, Edmonds Center for the Arts (ECA) is proud to partner with Edmonds Senior Center to present a Community Songwriting Workshop for individuals living with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia, their families and care partners. Hosted at Edmonds Senior Center, this program will be facilitated by professional songwriters from Songwriting Works (SW), and is presented as part of ECA’s new Dementia-Inclusive Series.
Using creative conversation, storytelling, improvisation and life review, participants will create songs that reflect community voices, realities and diversity. Family members often comment that songwriting with their loved ones becomes a new kind of respite for themselves: they enjoy the uplifting spontaneity of the experience and gain new insights and ways to communicate through play and music.
The Community Songwriting Workshop takes place at Edmonds Senior Center from 10:00 am-12:00 pm on April 7 & 8, 2016.
Cost: Admission is $15/person or $25/couple for 2-day entrance. Seniors with limited disposable incomes are invited to attend for $2/day through ECA’s Arts for Everyone program.
To register, please contact the ECA Box Office directly at 425.275.9595. Drop-ins welcome.
