TRANSPARENT BOUNDARIES IN ITALY – Lesley Millar

Just returned from a truly inspirational experience with our colleagues in Italy. AMAT had arranged for the incredible dance/performance artist Alessandro Sciarroni to create a performance with a group of Elders in the beautiful Teatro Persiani in Recanati. Leading up to the event Alessandro had conducted Skype workshops with Elders from partner countries and on the night we had the Italian group in the theatre and our Greek and UK Elders via Skype. The performance, created collaboratively between the group and Alessandro was a triumph of passion, dignity, humour and sensitivity.  A huge thank you to all concerned for an unforgettable experience.

A more detailed report on the conference will be up on the website shortly.
