Can we live longer, better?
HeadSpace2018 was a two-day celebration of scientific and creative investigation into brain health and dementia.
Held in Trinity College Dublin on April 27th & 28th 2018, we invited people to join us in conversations about caring communities, research and cultural solutions, that informed, engaged, entertained and inspired.
Working as a cultural producer in a department of neuro-science focused on reducing the impact of Alzheimers and dementias leads to sleepless nights and interesting observations. An instinctive collaborator and passionate believer in co-creation, Dominic Campbell invites your engagement with his idea - that celebration might be one of the finest routes to a better experience for populations aging at scale.
Dominic Campbell is co-founder of Creative Aging International developing innovative strategy to better adapting individuals and systems to aging, using creative and entertainment models that encourage people to “fall in love with their older selves.” Former director of the Bealtaine Festival, the world’s first nationwide arts festival celebrating positive aging, he's mentored similar projects in Europe, Australia and the US. Previously he was artistic director of Ireland’s St Patrick’s Festival and co-curator of the “Theatre of” Symposia series with Dublin’s Abbey Theatre, where he helped establish a network of women artists working through theater in conflict zones. Campbell is developing collaboration between artists and scientists exploring the social and health impact of demographic change while working to articulate the transitions of contemporary aging.
