Created Out of Mind will be exhibiting our work highlighting diverse dementia stories throughout May as part of the Creative Matters: Caring for Dementia season at Norwich Theatre Royal.

When: 4th May - 31st May 2018

This photographic exhibition, developed by Susanna Howard for Created Out of Mind with Wellcome photographers Ben Gilbert and Steven Pocock, reveals the diverse and unique experiences of people living with different dementias and challenges people to reconsider their initial assumptions about what dementia looks like.

This is part of Talking Life, a series of podcast conversations sharing the life observations and personal stories of people experiencing dementias and their loved ones. 

Visitors will also have a chance to listen to excerpts from the podcasts on our 'Talking Life on Tour' interactive telephone which will be at the theatre until 21st May. Don't worry if you can't make it to Norwich - phones will be popping up around various venues including Wellcome Collection during Dementia Action Week (21st-27th May)!

 

Creative Matters: Caring for dementia includes a series of performances, films, exhibitions, workshops and events which focus on dementia from a range of perspectives. 

Creative Matters are a series of month long activities focusing on issues which directly affect people of all ages and backgrounds and aim to stimulate discussion through creative means. More information here
