John Keady presented on behalf of Work Programme 1 at the Les Assises de la Recherché et de l’Innovation Sociale conference in Paris on 8 March 2017. The presentation focused on people living with dementia as co-researchers.
On Friday 10 March 2017, Lesley Calvert (co-researcher from Open Doors), Cathy Riley (Open Doors Manager) and Caroline presented at the First International Arts and Dementia Conference in London. Our presentation outlined ‘The Changing Faces of Our Neighbourhoods’ project, which was designed and is being undertaken by Open Doors research group members. We are scheduled to start filming on 3 and 5 April 2017. Lesley delivered a fantastic presentation on the cultural heritage of Salford and growing up in the era of regeneration, whilst Cathy talked about how the project came into fruition and the wider Open Doors Network. Caroline concluded the presentation with some personal reflections – it’s a blessing and a privilege!
