Dementia Dialogue Evenings
As a researcher in the of the Long Term Care Dementia team at the Anthropology department of the University of Amsterdam I co-organised the Dementia Dialogue Evenings. These evenings were aimed at facilitating exchange between people who live with dementia, family members or partners who (had) cared for somebody with dementia and professional dementia carers.
The evenings consisted of a presentation by one of the researchers in our team, an interactive element in smaller groups (e.g. an exercise or a Socratic dialogue ) and a plenary discussion.

Palliative Care Collaboratories
In the Forms of Care project my colleagues Simon Cohn, Erica Borgstrom and I developed 'Collaboratories': spaces of collaboration where sharing paradigms, problems, methods and concepts can catalyse novelty and experimentation. To date, we have delivered 6 collaboratories with two palliative care teams in London.
