Seminar on dementia art project "Beyond Memories"

Date: Thursday 5 October 2017

Time: 1600 - 1800

Location: 10 Thurloe Place, South Kensington, SW7 2RZ


The Care Home Research Network (CHRN) invite you to join them for a special afternoon seminar, hosted in collaboration with the London Brain Project, a not-for-profit organisation which aims to engage the public with brain sciences and mental health through the arts.

Their latest project, Beyond Memories, uses art to help understand what it is like to live with dementia, as well as exploring the perspectives of dementia researchers. All the work created in the collaboration between people with dementia, scientists and artists will be on display.

Seminar attendees will hear about the work Dr Ingelin Testad, Director of the CHRN and programme manager in dementia research at King’s College London, has been doing with artist, Sophie Michel, and also see the piece of art the pair co-created.  London Brain Project members will also describe the work artists did with people with dementia and carers, and the work that resulted.

Attendees will also have an opportunity to hear updates on care home-related research, as well as get an insight into some of the laboratory based dementia research that is taking place at King's College London.

The event is open to anybody with an interest in dementia and care home research - if you would like to attend, or have any questions, please contact

The CHRN is a network of over 200 care homes in London and southeast England which aims to improve the quality of life of people with dementia.  Convened by the NIHR Maudsley Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) at King’s College London, it provides an opportunity for care home workers and researchers to exchange ideas, share best practice, and to shape scientific research.
