Since 2015 I have been an artist in residence with Living Words, an arts and literature charity working with people living with dementia, isolated individuals and communities.
During care home residencies, I work one-to-one with residents and care staff to co-create books of their words. We also run staff workshops and create performances to share our work.
In 2019 we evolved our person-centred arts practice to work with individuals who had decided not to take their lives. This became the Living Warriors pilot project.
