In recognition of Dementia Awareness Week (14th-20th May 2017), we invite you to take part in the Dementia Arts Photo Challenge!
As part of Created Out of Mind’s mission to explore, challenge and shape perceptions of dementias and the arts, we invite people living with dementia, carers, family members and friends to share images of themselves engaging with the arts.
How you define the arts is completely up to you and could include: painting, viewing art, sculpture, ceramics, music, singing, dance, literature, drama and theatre, film, calligraphy, knitting, photography, flower arranging, decorating or fashion design. Please send images and descriptions to firstname.lastname@example.org or share via social media using #dementiaartsphotochallenge (links to our social media accounts can be found at the bottom of this page).
We have a range of events and activities planned in and around Dementia Awareness Week- click on the individual events in our calendar to learn more!
