Dementia Voices


  • Manchester Camerata

Project summary

While public awareness of dementia has increased, public understanding remains limited. We are creating a new arts and health ecology within Greater Manchester’s devolved health infrastructure. It will focus on the mental health of older people, particularly those with dementia. We will develop music-based interventions that have a significant impact on health, care and quality of life using research-led practice in collaboration with universities and NHS partners. 

Our aim is to deliver an ambitious programme of public engagement and creative enquiry into the lived experience, current research, and potential role of music in early onset dementia.
