A DEMENTIA poetry project exploring a range of themes including living with the condition is on display at Dudley Library until the end of next month.

In the winter of 2017, The Arts of Change (The AoC) a counselling and therapeutic arts company was awarded a grant from The Arts Council England to develop a poetry project that had started back in 2011.

The group facilitators were sought and trained to delivery poetry groups to people living with dementia at Brett Young Gateway, Crystal Gateway in Dudley and BUDS: The Dementia Support Charity in Sandwell.

 

More than 70 original poems were created by the entire members of each of those groups and the individuals within them.

60 of these are now being displayed in the exhibition which is at Dudley Library until May 27.

A spokesman for The AoC said: “Each of the poems are beautiful and moving.

“If you are in the area, please make time to visit our exciting exhibition and feel free to leave a comment in our comments box”

The free display is also in support of dementia awareness week which kicks off nationally on Monday, May 21.
