This special Nuwa Connect is brought to you in partnership with the Enabling Festival 2019.
We will hear from two creative enterprises; Mind Palace who are addressing the wellbeing of the patient and those in their circle of care, and from Our Better World who aim to inform and build empathy, preparing all of us to better manage dementia.
Mind Palace; We all know about VR and AR. But have you thought of using it to help people, like dementia patients in nursing homes?
Find out more from Eugene Soh, a tech artist. He is the founder of Dude Studios (dude.sg), a creative tech studio focusing on Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality, and Mind Palace (mindpalacevr.org), a social enterprise that uses VR to help dementia patients and nursing home residents revisit fond places and explore the world from the comfort and safety of their chairs, keeping their minds active and slowing the effects of dementia.
Our Better World, the digital storytelling initiative of the Singapore International Foundation, is an online media for good platform that helps raise awareness for different social and environmental causes in Asia.
Rebecca Lim, Head of Our Better World will share how digital media, film and storytelling have enabled them to build empathy and understanding. Rebecca will share what they have learnt about the possibilities and challenges of digital storytelling, their work around dementia, and future plans.
