Dementia and Imagination


Dementia and Imagination is a three year interdisciplinary project is funded by the AHRC Connected Communities programme. It is led by Dr Gillian Windle (Bangor University) with a team of investigators at the University of Newcastle, the University of Nottingham, City University, and MMU. Nottingham Contemporary is a partner in the project, alongside Age Watch and Baltic.

Dementia and Imagination will bring together researchers from social science with research in the visual arts, cultural policy and museum studies. It aims to look at methods derived from visual arts practice as a means of overcoming the isolation faced by those affected by dementia.
