SCREEN MEMORIES uses film, still images, memorabilia and selected film extracts to provide structured experiences to stimulate recall and boost self-esteem and confidence. It establishes connections within a community of interest for people who are living with dementia and other memory problems, as well as those who are lonely, socially or geographically isolated. Our aim is to reconnect people with the memories and feelings associated with their love of cinema and build a community around the project. We work with local groups to determine their specific needs and have developed the sessions around this knowledge. We work with schools to encourage intergenerational interaction within local communities.
