Thursday 17 March 2016, 12.30pm to 1.30pm


Join us for an informal information session to learn a bit more about dementia, led by a Dementia Friends Champion. This session is inspired by work in our current exhibition Jerwood/Photoworks Awards 2015.

Jerwood/Photoworks Awardee Matthew Finn has been photographing his mother, Jean, in a series of collaborative portraits since 1987. Following the onset of dementia, Jean’s mental health has changed her role in these sensitive and highly personal portraits from active participant to one of an observed subject.

Dementia Friends Champion Paula Truman will lead a session about understanding dementia, with the opportunity for attendees to become a Dementia Friend.
