B Arts are attending a range of carers’ groups across the county working with individuals living with Dementia and their carers to digitise their life stories. Participants are invited to bring in personal photographs and ephemera significant to them to be scanned. These are used as a staring point and added to by the creation of music playlists, and publically sourced image and video-footage. B arts works with these individuals to upload and organise these onto a specially built life story platform. Participants are then able to access the platform as a tool for engaging with their relative and something they can continue to add to within their own time.
The project is funded by Staffordshire Cares: Community Wellbeing Fund
