‘There’s No Bus Map for Dementia’ Comic Launch

for participants
for carers

Join us for the launch of \'There\'s No Bus Map for Dementia\', a new mini-comic about the experience of living well with dementia and the condition’s social and emotional impacts​. The comic was created through a series of arts workshops in which artists and people living with dementia have worked together to find ways to represent and depict the condition in a comics format. The finished comic aims to improve understanding around what it is like to have dementia and how people with dementia would prefer to be treated.

At the launch event, you can meet the artists involved and also participants from the Beth Johnson Foundation who co-created the comic. There will be an opportunity to hear about their experiences and ask questions, as well as collect your free copy of the comic.
