Created Out of Mind: The Story

Prof Sebastian Crutch describes how Created Out of Mind came about to explore opportunities of bringing together work in the dementia and arts fields.

Watch Prof Sebastian Crutch describe how the Created Out of Mind project came about to explore opportunities of bringing together work in the dementia and the arts field. In this video you will:

  • Be introduced to the idea of working with people living with a dementia to draw out their own experiences of their conditions, and how this can stimulate further (artistic as well as scientific) work and research.

  • Learn about the original inspiration of working with William Utermohlen.

  • Hear why the arts are a powerful tool for helping to communicate both the experience and biology of a dementia.
