#TateExchange   #CultureShifts

Open Eye Gallery is working across Merseyside on a new socially engaged photographic programme Culture Shifts. This Tate Exchange Liverpool event showcases the first collaborative project.

Liverpool based photographer Tadhg Devlin has been 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.

At Tate Exchange Liverpool, 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 also 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.
