Moving Pictures 2 - Isolated Times

Welcome to the June 2020 edition of the Moving Pictures newsletter. We hope that you are all keeping well and taking good care of yourselves in these unusual times. Like many of you, the Moving Pictures team has been working at home and becoming well acquainted with Zoom and Microsoft Teams. We have been pressing ahead with development of our Greek and Italian resources and are looking towards starting work on Moving Pictures Vietnamese and Spanish.

Moving Pictures Greek: Coming Soon...

In early June, we held our Greek co-design storyboarding online workshop with members of our steering group and Greek service providers. This was a productive meeting with our workshop participants helping to refine our storyboards. It was also a rare opportunity for team members to meet face to face, at a safe distance.

It was exciting to get the first cut of the Moving Pictures Greek films from our partners at Fire Films, based on the feedback from workshop participants. We can’t wait to launch the films in the coming months! We are now working towards our Italian co-design workshop which will be coming up very soon.

Come work with us!

We are recruiting Vietnamese- and Spanish-speaking research assistants for the next stage of Moving Pictures 2. Applications close 17 July 2020. Apply now!

Be part of Moving Pictures Vietnamese and Spanish

If you are a caregiver of someone with dementia in Victoria, and you come from a Vietnamese or Spanish-speaking background, we want to hear from you! We are looking for family carers who would be willing to take part in a video interview about the process of diagnosis, navigating care, and the carer experience.

We would also like to speak to Vietnamese and Spanish speaking service providers who work with these communities.

Moving Pictures is going to India!

Any travel to India is, at present, only metaphorical of course, but we are thrilled to announce that Associate Professor Bianca Brijnath and Dr Josefine Antoniades have been funded to take the Moving Picture project beyond Australia! With Indian partners at the National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences (NIMHANS) in Bangalore, MP India will use the same co-design methods to develop films covering understandings of dementia, social and clinical care, sources of help, and care pathways for Indian caregivers of people with dementia. The films will be in Hindi and Kannada.

ADAPT: Animating for Dementia Prevention in CALD communities

We are also excited to report that Bianca and Jo, along with Dr Andrew Gilbert, have recently been awarded a grant from the Department of Health to develop animated films on dementia prevention for CALD communities. The films will be developed in the current MP languages of Arabic, Cantonese, Mandarin, Hindi, Tamil, Italian, Greek, Vietnamese and Spanish, and animated by our partners at OOI communications. The project will be managed by Dr Samantha Croy.

In our research with communities, the most common question we are asked is how to prevent dementia. The ADAPT films will provide much needed dementia prevention information for Australia’s culturally and linguistically diverse groups.
