‘Dementia Australia’s headline event for Dementia Action Week 2019 will be held at the Sydney Opera House from 10.30am to 1pm on Monday 16 September.
The event will feature a panel discussion with Dementia Australia Ambassador Ita Buttrose AC OBE; The Hon Jeff Kennett AC, former Premier of Victoria and former Chair of Beyond Blue; Shaynna Blaze, interior designer, host of Selling Houses Australia on Foxtel and a judge on the Nine Network’s The Block; and including others with a lived experience of dementia.
The panel discussion will be followed by a screening of a beautiful and moving short film Baba, which tells the story of a day of traumatic events that lead a family caring for a loved one living with dementia to make a tough decision. This will be followed with a Q&A with the film’s director John Fink.
