Rachael Savage, Vamos Theatre’s Artistic Director, is one of the UK’s leading experts in non-verbal communication and performance. Her keynote speeches focus on the company’s engaging, funny and poignant shows that encourage debate, empathy and learning around potentially difficult subject matters; such as dementia, post-traumatic stress, end of life and attention deficit hyperactivity (ADHD). Rachael also discusses the company’s popular interactive shows created specifically for care homes. In an engaging and entertaining talk, she gives an insight into the positive impact the arts can have on people receiving care, their carers and their families, as well as the wider impact arts-led practice has in building empathetic and caring communities.
