Living with Memory Loss: In Our Own Words

Out of the desire to be advocates, members of The Gathering Place program who are living with memory loss, chose to create this short documentary, Living with Memory Loss: In Our Own Words.

On Monday, November 18th from 1-2pm, a social worker from the Greenwood Senior Center will be screening the documentary followed by a discussion.

Spoken word is an oral art form that focuses on the aesthetic of word play, voice inflection and intonation.  It includes any kind of poetry recited aloud such as hip-hop, jazz poetry, poetry slams, traditional poetry readings and even comedy and prose monologues.  Listen Up! is a 3 month-long series of intergenerational and solo workshops in which Seattle youth will partner with community members from Lake City. Inspired by the power of our community’s united voice to inspire change, Book-It is pleased to be partnering with Spoken Word Artist Meredith Arena, Silver Kite Community Arts and students from Ida B Wells Middle College High School in our collective cry to “Listen Up!”

After a successful 2017 fall tour, Ada’s Violin returns for an encore Summer Tour.  Don’t miss it, August 13th at the Lake City Community Center. 11am-12pm.
