The term 'co-creativity' appears to be enjoying a moment in the spotlight. Recently, François Matarasso described co-creativity as work in which 'the producer-consumer distinction is erased.' We are interested in how this approach to artistic practice might be thought of and defined in the area of arts and dementia, and as part of our research, we invite you to take part in this survey. 

Completing the survey may take you only 5 mins, or may take you hours, depending on how much of your energy you wish to give! However much time and effort you spend, we will be enormously grateful. Thank you!

With all

Created Out of Mind are also inviting people living with dementias to be part of our 'With all' project, exploring what we can co-create together.

Together we will explore, experiment and play using music, dance, our personal life-histories and our imaginations. The group will include some people living with dementias and their partners, two dancers, three musicians and two researchers.

At the end of each session we will share tea and cake.

Date/Time: Every Wednesday from 1.30pm to 4.30pm, starting on 10th January 2018 for 10 weeks. Please come to every session if you can.

Venue: The Hub, 5th floor, Wellcome Collection, 183 Euston Road, London NW1 2BE.
