Memory Book

A new small exhibition will display a series of special Memory Books that are bringing the past and present alive for people living locally with dementia.

The books incorporate ideas around place and identity, portraits and family and are inspired by the current Julian Opie exhibition, Pitzhanger Manor and Walpole Park.   

Lucy Riberio, an artist who specialises in art and wellbeing, devised 10 practical activities which were prepared into a Memory Book sent out to clients of the Michael Flanders Centre to complete as the easing of lockdown begun, as most of them were still shielding. The books have developed into life biographies that help participants and their carers be creative together and discover likes and dislikes, stories, memories, and things that are important to them.

Pitzhanger has worked with the Michael Flanders Centre, Blue Bird Care and the London Borough of Ealing to create the exhibition. The Michael Flanders Resource centre provides day opportunities for individuals over the age of 65 who have been assessed by the council as having critical or substantial needs. Their aim is to enable independent living by supporting these individuals with a variety of day opportunities tailored to their need in a dignified manner.
