  • Sydney Opera House Sydney Australia (map)

‘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.
