What do people know about dementia? And why is it important to think carefully about the way we represent dementia? Is there room for more positivity? This online interactive workshop answers these questions and more. It will feature two short talks from researchers working on dementia, from literary and scientific perspectives, and you’ll hear directly from people with lived experience of dementia. The event's virtual pin board is already open for audience participation. Join in and unpack what ‘dementia’ means in our collective imagination. The group will use the pin board as the basis for discussion and will build on what is shared here when the event is opened up for a Q&A.
