Photographer Ian Beesley, cartoonist Tony Husband and poet Ian McMillan have been working with dementia groups around the country creating sixteen banners campaigning for a better understanding and representation of those living with dementia. These banners, based on traditional trade union designs, are important symbols of self-reliance and tangible proof of existence.
This work was created as part of the A Life More Ordinary project funded by the Economic and Social Research Council, linked to the IDEAL programme; Improving the Experience of Dementia and Enhancing Active Life, led by the University of Exeter.
