The creative urge is a defining feature of what it means to be human
From animals leaping in red ochre on cave walls, to the foundation myths shared around campfires – creativity allows us to tell ourselves a story about who we are, where we have been and where we are going.
Dementia doesn’t necessarily curb the desire to be creative.
On the contrary, many people begin to explore new forms of expression after their diagnosis. Many others maintain or rekindle old skills.
It feels good. It brings us together. And we learn from it and from each other.
These pages celebrate the many ways in which people with dementia tell a story about who they are, where they have been, and where they are going.
