ARTWORK created by people living with dementia is currently on display in Worcester.

The Infirmary Medical Museum, which is part of the University of Worcester's city campus, is hosting a celebration of the artwork as part of its Looking Out, Looking In exhibition, which started on Saturday.

The exhibition ends on Saturday, August 30 and explores the meaning of home.

Carol Bowsher, the museum’s learning and access officer, said: “This has been a super project to be involved with. It has been great to hear everyone’s stories about the tiles they have made from seeing their favourite places.

“The exhibition looks fantastic in the Jenny Lind Chapel — the colour of the stained glass windows alongside the made glass sets the work off perfectly.”

The work was completed during short courses held in the chapel in May and July, with the courses enabling participants to gain skills, meet new people and work alongside fused glass artist Sue Purser Hope.

The project was open to anyone living with dementia and the Infirmary worked alongside Worcestershire’s Alzheimer’s Society, a local care home and with guidance from the university’s Association for Dementia Studies.

The exhibition can be viewed between 9am and 5pm from Monday to Friday and 10am to 4pm on Saturdays.

The Jenny Lind Chapel is on the ground floor of the university’s Charles Hastings building, which is based on the city campus.
