WHAT IS IT ABOUT ARTS AND DEMENTIA?

2018 - 2019

A collaboration with ForMed Films CIC to disseminate some of the findings of my PhD research. For artists, arts organisations and the general public.  


We created a graphic narrative using the words of people I interviewed in my research. It describes the challenges and presents what they saw as some of the solutions for successful evaluation of arts and dementia projects.

Emma Lazenby and I presented our work on this project at the BPS Creative Methods seminar series on 8 July 2019. You can see a PDF version of our presentation here.
