ENCOUNTERS is a dementia inclusive art book designed to stimulate communication, spark the imagination and provide a focus for conversation and being creative. It was designed to provide new ways for people with dementia to interact with their carer or loved one, but we hope the publication is useful for anyone to use as a way into an artwork.
