Imelda Dooley Hunter
Imelda graduated with a BA in English from Oxford University, and is currently studying for a Masters degree in Literature and Arts, also at Oxford. She spent nine months working on a small cruise ship, running a tour programme which visited heritage sites around the Mediterranean, Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Before coming to Arts 4 Dementia, she spent a year working for a Community Interest Company on two programmes which enabled access to the visual arts and to music for people from low-income backgrounds.
Imelda has experience living with and caring for people with dementia, and a keen interest in how the Arts can become an integral part of this process. In her spare time, she paints, draws, plays the piano, volunteers at the Horniman Museum and runs long distances.
