Outreach activities

Detangling the knots

It has been a pleasure contributing to the project Detangling the knots led by visual artist Barbara Touati-Evans. In this two-phase project, artists have firstly visited our labs to explore our scientific approach to study dementia, and secondly they have interacted with patients and carers to understand their needs. They will be bringing all of these experiences together in artistic creative responses such as their  performance: “Touch Cells”. This performance won the Creativity Award for the Human Worlds Festival. November 2019. (Photo credit: Melanie Ray for Detangling the Knots).
