Multimedia exhibition explores the world of people with dementia

A unique arts project in Yorkshire has looked behind the myths surrounding dementia to reveal the stories of those with the condition that is set to affect 1m people in the UK within the next decade.

Writer Paula Sutherland and photographer and film-maker Geoff Brokate from arts company verd de gris were commissioned to provide creative sessions for people with dementia and in doing so were able to explore how the disease affects the individual.

The project has resulted in a multi-media exhibition, Soul Journey, at the Creative Arts Hub in Mirfield.
