Join us at this one-day conference in collaboration with the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) to learn about, and engage with, science and arts-based research that has the potential to enhance the lives of people living with dementias and those that care for them.  

Created Out of Mind collaborators will share findings, insights and experiences arising from work developed with, and by, people living with dementias. Delegates will have an opportunity to learn about (and also experience) creative experiments, innovations in health technologies and new research findings.

This conference will be chaired by Fergus Walsh, BBC Medical Correspondent.
