Project summary

Long-term Information and Knowledge on Ageing (LINKAGE) Camden was established to understand the determinants and consequences of acute and chronic illness on cognitive and functional outcomes in older people. It tracks a population-representative sample aged over 70 years, prospectively following them in health and social care over a period of two years. 

We will create opportunities to include the qualitative narratives that are emerging from the LINKAGE study as a substrate for an installation exhibition (Lost & Found). Participants will act as storytellers, influencing our understanding of the personal and societal effects of ageing, and the public discourse on what it means to grow older.

This grant was awarded under the scheme's previous name of Provision for Public Engagement.
