Over the last 5 weeks YoungDementia UK have been lucky enough to work alongside Nicola and her amazing team of artists and musicians. We have enjoyed working together on a collage of Mademoiselle Claus, learnt about Manet, sung songs and recited poetry. We have laughed lots, rekindled skills, relived memories, discovered treasures in the Ashmolean and shared a delicious lunch. We have all enjoyed being part of the group and many new memories and friendships have been formed:
“I’ve loved doing different things each time and being together is always a good thing. I loved doing the art and loved doing things with other people. It’s been a lot of fun”.
“I feel like me again when I come to these sessions”
I know we will miss our Tuesday mornings at the Ashmolean as it has been such good fun but we look forward to the opening of the exhibition in June.
