Rachael Savage, Vamos Theatre’s Artistic Director, brings arts-led practice to life in a talk on the company's work within the Health and Care sectors. She focuses on the creation of Vamos Theatre's touring theatre shows, like Finding Joy, about living with dementia; A Brave Face, about military PTS; and Dead Good, a show about end of life. In an engaging, poignant and entertaining talk, Rachael gives an insight into the positive impact engagement with the arts can have on people receiving care, their carers, and their families.
