We are committed to creating quality artistic experiences that challenge and question accepted perceptions of difference, communication and the dementias.
The work of Living Words in care settings and the community is the inspiration for our wider programme of publications, performance, literature events and festivals.
We aim to share the inside world of people whose voices are not usually heard, so that together we can all learn to see each other as people, not labels or diagnoses that might be put on us. We aim to challenge perceptions of the dementias, increase understanding and awareness and promote integration. In our works, the words of people living with a dementia take centre stage. We are also committed to enable, and give platforms to, our artists to reflect on their own experiences and practices and create work from and about this. We are interested in how other artists and organisations express and represent our work, to further the dissemination of both good practice and enable the voices of individuals to be heard by more people.
