Rosie and Chris Anderson are passionate about enabling people living with dementia to continue telling their stories. ‘Pieces of My Jigsaw’ is a project which does just that, through conversations, illustrations and songs. It seeks to encourage families who have a loved one living with dementia to record their memories creatively in order to continue sharing them for as long as possible.
From 15th – 23rd February we will be displaying the story of the project, which includes information about the participants and their fascinating lives, the original artist’s books that were made as a result of their conversations and a shortened version of the Arts Council funded film about the whole process, with its soundtrack of original songs written by Rosie.
The entire ‘Pieces of My Jigsaw’ film can be seen at the Phoenix Theatre in Blyth on 29th January at 7pm and at the Forum Cinema in Hexham on 4th February at 6pm. More details about the project can be found on Rosie and Chris’s Crackin Toast Facebook page.
