Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust

9 October 2016

Tadhg Devlin and the SURF Dementia group with Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust.

Liverpool based photographer Tadhg Devlin is working in collaboration with the Dementia SURF (Service User Reference Forum) group, supported by Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust. The group has a strong track record as ambassadors for those living with early on set dementia. A number of the group have been working closely with Devlin to create Photo Stories which break the stigma associated with dementia, and reflect their lives as individuals, not as a condition.

The project will make its public debut as part of the new Tate Exchange programme.

“The best exchange is seeing the world through my eyes”

At Tate Exchange Liverpool, based in the heart of the gallery’s collection displays, Culture Shifts will showcase a series of photographic works and a creative newspaper. The newspaper acts as an artwork in its own right and as well as an alternative piece of interpretation about living with dementia and the individual stories of the SURF group members.

Culture Shifts will host a series of events led by the SURF group as well as various guest speakers from the Arts, Health and Care sector. We aim to open up dialogue around Arts and Health and raise awareness around dementia in a creative and engaging way.
