Join a conversation about dementia, creativity and what it means to be human.

Meet the Created Out of Mind researchers who are working with people living with dementias to tell new stories and develop unique and collaborative approaches to research, in conversation with artist Alex Julyan.

Musician Julian West and social gerontologist Hannah Zeilig will be leading a conversation about co-creativity - touching on ideas of equality, creativity, independence and agency for people living with dementias and those working with them. There will also be a chance to play some instruments - let’s see what we can create together!

This is part of their With All research project for Created Out of Mind. Read more here
