Vote for this project about elderly people and sound memories

Dear Genetic Choir friends,

we are preparing a project in which the Genetic Choir will go into elderly people’s homes to search for sound memories and sing those memories back to the people living there. We also want to train family of alzheimer patients and health-care personnel to make contact with those sometimes seemingly unreachable elderly in a different way, inspired by the Genetic Choir approach.

In order to do this, we set up a pilot project together with an old people’s home in Amsterdam, but we need YOUR HELP to actually make it happen. We just need a little bit of your time to gather enough votes on jijmaakthetmee.nl – a website that facilitates funding for small social/cultural projects. The idea is that we gather at least 100 audience votes, which would mean we get a chance for a 5.000 euro pilot grant.

 

Do you have a few minutes for us to leave your vote?

It’s a Dutch website and in order to vote for us you are obliged to either login with facebook or create an account (via e-mail), but if you are used to signing in to other web accounts, it is all pretty self-explanatory. You just have to know where to click.  🙂

Quick instructions for people with a facebook account (easiest):

  • Click there and you reach “Inloggen”. If you have a facebook account, you can click there on ‘login met facebook’.
  • Then, once your login is accepted you will see the button “STEM” (“vote”) appear in the same place on the right hand side of the project page  (  https://www.jijmaakthetmee.nl/aanvraag/huis-van-lied-en-geluid-pilot )
  • PRESS IT!  Done.

Quick instructions for people without a facebook account:

  • Go to https://www.jijmaakthetmee.nl/aanvraag/huis-van-lied-en-geluid-pilot
  • On the right hand side, under the ‘vote meter’ (0-100) you see in small green letters “Log in om te stemmen”
  • Click there and you reach “Inloggen”. There, change the tab above to ‘New account aanmaken
  • There, enter your e-mail address (a confirmation e-mail will be sent to this address). Enter your “Voornaam” (first name), disregard “Tussenvoegsel”, enter your “Achternaam” (surname) and for the Robot-check enter “Rutte” (the answer to the question ‘What is the surname of the minister-president of the Netherlands?’). Apparently, robots wouldn’t know. 😉
  • You will then receive an e-mail in your inbox to make sure again that you are a real person, which you have to click-confirm
  • After you checked your e-mail inbox, you need to return to https://www.jijmaakthetmee.nl/aanvraag/huis-van-lied-en-geluid-pilot and log in. (Again: On the right hand side, under the ‘vote meter’ (0-100) you see in small green letters “Log in om te stemmen”
