A non-profit social design collective and education charity, Enable Foundation launches its first OK Dementia™ Festival in Hong Kong in an attempt to break the stigma and change norms about dementia.
Through short animations, a co-creation workshop on “dementia things” and an online forum with experts from the project, the OK Dementia™ Festival at SPARK celebrates creativity for social inclusion and cross-cultural innovation.
Collaborations include British illustrator Ali Hodgson on the animations; and UK-based designer Pascal Anson and VOICE ® from the National Innovation Centre for Ageing, Newcastle University (NICA), to visualise "dementia stories" and develop a set of "dementia things" in English. All works are showcased at the online forum.
