The European Reminiscence Network

The European Reminiscence Network aims to promote best practice in reminiscence work and to share experience across national frontiers.

Co-ordinated by Pam Schweitzer since its inception in 1993, the Network now has partners in 20 countries and many associates in USA, Canada, India, Latin America, Australia and the Far East.

The partners work together to develop international projects, focusing on particular areas of reminiscence work and drawing in new and existing partners as co-operators with relevant interests and skills.

All these projects are documented and externally evaluated, and some have resulted in widely used publications.

Memory Grand Challenge: Exploring links between reminiscence in dementia care and oral history

The above seminar was held at the University of Greenwich on Thursday 13th October 2016 | Time: 3pm – 6pm

Over the last three years, key members of the Oral History Society have participated in the new Training and Apprenticeship scheme in Reminiscence in Dementia Care. They have worked with older people with dementia and their family carers revisiting the key stages in their lives using creative arts-based approaches in order to support the sense of identity and self-worth of the participants.

The results of this work have been significant for the families involved and were discussed at the seminar by key speakers.

Latest project: Remembering the Past: Building the Future 2015-17

“Remembering the Past-Building the Future” is an eighteen-month international project within the framework of the “Europe for Citizens” programme which aims to show how memory, despite its fragility, manages to preserve the past against the destructive work of time and brings along the hope for a better future.

This is a partnership project involving the European Reminiscence Network and the University of Greenwich.

European Reminscence Network members working together on dementia projects in StockholmOur current, recent and past projects involve a highly practical and interactive approach to reminiscence and oral history with a cross-cultural perspective, celebrating difference and sharing common experience to promote international understanding.

As well as reminiscence practitioners, many older people living in different partner countries participate in the projects, through performance, workshops, discussion and exchange visits.

Our work is funded on a project-by project basis through the European Commission and through central and local government bodies in the partner countries. Other funds have come from research bodies and charitable trusts.
