On 12th April we will be launching four films made by people with dementia.
In 2009 we set out to make a series of films to illustrate the creativity and positivity with which people with dementia were living their lives
We worked with people with dementia living in the South-West who wanted to help spread the message that although a diagnosis of dementia may be life-changing, it is not life-ending
We have made four short films. Three of these were made by people living in Exeter (ACEx), and the fourth by the Forget-me-Not group in Swindon.
These are not just films about dementia, they are a testament to the energy and creativity of people living their lives with dementia.
We would be delighted if you would join us for the public launch, where we will be screening the films for the very first time.
Please feel free to invite anyone else you think might be interested in seeing the films. This will be a dementia-friendly event and everyone is welcome.
The launch will take place at the Picturehouse cinema in Exeter at 1.45pm on Monday the 12th April.
If you would like to come – please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org, or telephone Steve Milton on 01392 420076.
If you can’t come to the launch, the films will be available to view, or to download at our website www.innovationsindementia.org.uk from 13th April 2010.
Help us help spread the message that a diagnosis of dementia may be life-changing, but it is not life-ending.
