Living Words Request
Since 2007, Living Words has pioneered an arts and literature programme working in equitable partnerships with people impacted by dementias and mental ill health. Through this process, which began with people living with dementia, we evolved an ethically and methodologically sound process, Listen Out Loud, to co-create individual books of words about their lived experience. Informed by this intimate participatory work, with participant involvement, and within an ethical framework, we create anthologies, films, performance, songs and events to enable these voices to be heard in the world, and to challenge associated societal stigma and promote inclusion.
What are they looking for?
Living Words has openings available for Trustees! We are seeking: People with an appreciation of, and commitment to Living Words’ journey, aims and ethos. To complement the skills and expertise we already have on the board, we are looking for trustees who have experience in legal, marketing, finance or running a mid-size arts organisation. We are also looking to recruit a Chair for the board, and are open to who this person might be. In addition we would like to hear from individuals under 25 with an interest in the arts, dementias and/or mental health, who might like to join our board.
