How can language and typography inform public understanding of dementias? And how can personal experiences help us collectively reimagine the way we talk about these conditions?

Join Created Out of Mind artist Charlie Murphy, researchers and Pixel Press to consider how dementia campaigns might be reimagined through graphic communication, using both traditional and unconventional approaches to typography and print.

This is a free, ticketed event. Please book at the link below. 

Charlie Murphy is Co-Director of Visual Arts for Created Out of Mind. Her research is investigating how a variety of creative and scientific processes might articulate and visualise some of the impacts of different kinds of dementias. Her practice includes glass, light, photography, printing, performance and video.

Pixel Press is the experimental printmaking space of artists David Vassie and Julieta H Adame. They offer a collaborative platform, art studio, publishing house and classroom for people of different interests connected to language and printing.
