Matinée is an Arts Derbyshire Arts and Health project funded and supported by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation and Derbyshire County Council.
Matinée brings the magic of cinema to community locations across Derbyshire for those living with dementia, their family, friends and carers.
Until 2022 Matinée will work in 9 different venues across the county to provide 120 screenings, as well as conferences and training events, and an extensive learning programme. We work with a wide cross-section of partners including: Derbyshire County Council Arts Team, Public Health and Adult Care; CCGs; The University of Nottingham; The Alzheimer’s Society; the Film Hub Midlands; Derby QUAD; Making Space; and Derbyshire Dementia Action Alliance. Matinée is also proud to be a member of the BFI Film Audience Network.
If you would like some support to make your screenings or other arts activity more dementia-friendly, or even to set up dementia-friendly film screenings, please contact the Project Co-ordinator, Frances Watt, on firstname.lastname@example.org
The Matinée Project Co-ordinator is Frances Watt. Frances organises all the screenings and publicity across Derbyshire, coordinates our volunteers, and liaises with our partners and venues. Frances works part-time. You can contact her by email: email@example.com
