What are Reminiscence Arts?

Reminiscence Arts is Age Exchange’s unique approach to working creatively. Simply put, it is the creative exploration of memories.

We bring to life our stories and experiences, our shared heritage or even the history of our shared spaces. It’s why our work can be a narrative linear or, when we are working with people with memory difficulties, a memory that is recalled by an action.

For example, unlocking the smell of Chanel on your mother’s dressing table, the feel of woollen socks on a cold day, it’s just like riding a bike, something you never forget.

It’s why the use of Reminiscence Arts is at the cutting edge of dementia support. Our work builds bridges between the past, the present and the future.
