Recollectiv is a musical group primarily made up of people who are dealing with memory challenges due to illness (such as Alzheimers or Parkinsons) or trauma (such as brain injury or PTSD). Its primary mission is to spark joy and rekindle the mind through music making with others; by doing so, it helps both them and their care partners feel whole again and feel a part of a community.
The weekly rehearsal in an accessible location provides stimulation, socialization and lifts the spirits of both the players and their companions. There is no cost for participation and it is open to those who want to sing along or play an instrument, regardless of their musical abilities. Recollectiv is a project of the registered charitable organization Smile Theatre. For more information, visit www.recollectiv.ca
