Ashcroft Arts Centre, Hampshire Cultural Trust and Healthwatch Hampshire present this extraordinary project based on the voice and stories of people with dementia and their carers. Over the last few months, workshops have been taking place within three day centres run by Age Concern Hampshire, giving people the chance to speak about their experience of local health care services. I worked with them to transform these stories into poetry and at this event will be reading from a new poetry anthology created during the project.
