What is ‘Dementia and Imagination’? Dementia and Imagination was a large arts and science collaboration of universities, artists, charities and providers of cultural services. Our programme of work explored how arts activities:
- Are beneficial to people living with dementia and those who care for them.
- Help us understand the experience of living with dementia.
- Help raise public awareness of living with dementia.
We did this through five inter-linked projects. This research summary highlights the first phase of a project.
