The Game of the Oracle – 2016

The Odense House is a walk-in information and meeting center for people with dementia, and their families and friends. Activities are offered within the framework of the so-called “care break”, a moment of rest for care givers people with dementia. I carried out the ritual The Game of the Oracle twice with groups of 12 to 16 persons. This poetic and associative game calls on the right side of the brain, which often still works well in people with dementia. The Game of the Oracle indeed worked and delivered surprising and funny oracles.
