Liverpool John Moores University is delighted to announce an invitation to attend a symposium named Connecting Minds - Arts and Dementia.

By the age of 85 approximately one third of the population will aquire neurodegenerative disorders, including the dementias (NDD). The anticipated rise of NDD will have significant effect upon society. These are progressive conditions that have an adverse impact upon neurological functioning, including deterioration in emotional/behavioural control and disruption to cognitive processes (Budson & Kowall, 2014)

The Connecting Minds symposium will encourage dialogue and collaboration to pursue research interests and public engagement in relation to Arts and Dementia.

Our list of speakers include prominent researchers and renowned speakers connected to the field of Art and Dementia, including Professor John Ashton, President of the Faculty of Public Health; Linda Grant, Liverpool born author of "Remind me who I am again" and Jill Pendleton, Dementia lead for Merseycare.
