Intergenerational Process Drama: Practitioner Reflection on Creative Adventures in an Acute Hospital Context

Abraham, Nicola, James, Joanna and McGeorge, Elizabeth (2020) Intergenerational Process Drama: Practitioner Reflection on Creative Adventures in an Acute Hospital Context. Youth Theatre Journal. (In Press)

Abstract

This reflection will offer insights into the methodology of process drama as a tool for intergenerational connection, co-intentional pedagogy and playfulness for children collaborating with older adult patients living with dementia. Providing insights into the adaption of conventional models of process drama drawing on the work of Cecily O’Neill, this reflection considers the key lessons learnt from two years of Intergen, a project funded by Imperial Health Charity. Though the project itself incorporated multiple art forms, this piece will focus on intergenerational process drama to share insights into the way the practice evolved to engage both older adult patients and children in acute hospital contexts.
