Who should attend: 
clinicians, researchers, artists, public health workers and others working with people with dementia, their families and caregivers.

Venue:
The conference will take place over two days at 28 Portland Place and then move on the afternoon of the second day to the nearby Wellcome Collection Hub where delegates will meet the artists and researchers of Created Out of Mind: Shaping perceptions of dementia through art and science.

The Hub is a two year residency (2016-18) that supports the active connection and collaboration of previously disparate cultures (scientists, artists, commissioners/policymakers) and infuses the insights and skills of people living with dementia, communications professionals and collaboration experts. This will be an opportunity for delegates to explore the work in progress at the Hub through demonstrations and discussions.
