Brain in a window

The InspireFund has been awarded for a collaborative project between Sarah a researcher from the MRC Unit for Lifelong Health and Ageing at UCL and Rachel, creative experience designers from fanSHEN. The duo plan to create an audio play, The Window, a fictional story that interweaves a radio presenter’s personal experience of her mother’s dementia with her work conducting an interview with a dementia researcher, audiences will explore their own experiences, feelings and attitudes towards dementia. They hope to spread the progress, challenges and hope that dementia research offers.
