Celebrating Creative Adventures in Dementia: A Life More Ordinary Festival
On Thursday 17 & Friday 18 May 2018, we held a unique two day festival, exploring how the arts are touching the lives of people living with dementia in wonderful and remarkable ways.
This event included keynote speakers, performances and workshops by some of the most pioneering artists, practitioners, researchers and extraordinary people, working with people with dementia, in a variety of settings and in unique ways.

Also captured over the festival was Still Me's workshop, The Jamboree.
Still Me is a person-centered, participative multi-arts group for people living with dementia and their caregivers. It is one strand of A Life More Ordinary at the Dukes.
There are four artists involved in the delivery of Still Me and a multitude of positive outcomes have arisen from this unique, collaborative process-led project.
