What's it about

Renowned Poet, Patrick Jones is embarking on a Wales-wide project, creating a series of spoken word features, monologues and cycles of song focusing on peoples lived experiences of Dementia.

The work involves a series of pre-arranged creative writing workshops with groups of carers and people living with dementia. Patrick is also keen for people to submit thoughts, memories and any insights – in any form.

We’ll be updating on the project, and highlighting some of the work along the way.

How to share

#ThisIsMyTruthTellMeYours

You can submit any thoughts, ideas, reflections, poems or stories – they may from personal experience or of something that you’ve discovered and found particularly moving.

We will not feature, or reproduce anything without expressed permission.

It’s important to say, anything submitted will help Patrick in generating his work and will be greatly appreciated.

If you feel passionate about the project, please help spread the message

How will the work be used?

It’s anticipated that work will be published, and performed with leading Welsh musicians; to stand as a living testament, highlighting the nature of dementia and the positive impact of art in care.
