Current Research

My ESRC-funded CASE Studentship considers the health and wellbeing benefits of engaging in participatory arts activities for people with dementia and their carers. The project is based at Theatre by the Lake's 'Setting the Scene' programme in Keswick, Cumbria, which is a multi-arts creative activity group, including storytelling, movement and dance, arts and crafts, singing and music, multi-sensory experiences and group games. Fieldwork was conducted between July 2018 - July 2019 and used a participatory action research (PAR) methodology.
