This 18 month project extended our work with the Southampton and Eastleigh Alzheimer’s Society and was made in association with The Point, Eastleigh.
It saw Su and Catherine from Platform 4 working with the artist Gerry White who combines photographic animation with archival material and Pete Flood, percussionist and arranger for the celebrated band Bellowhead. We are also involved one of The Point’s Associate Artists, emerging installation artist Nicky Bellenger and dancer Sacha Lee.
We worked with Connections Club a social club for people with early onset dementia and their carers and Singing for the Brain groups. Spending time meeting lots of people and with their help, creating a body of research over a substantial period of time.
The work created and the people who inspired us were collated into a unique event: A Headphone Walk: Memory Point (S) around some of the unseen and hidden places of The Point’s building and open to the general public in Spring 2012.
STOP PRESS: We now have additional funding to make a promotional book of the project for launch at the end of 2012.
