MindSCAPE is a 4 year BIG Lottery funded project, developed to enable people living with dementia and their carers, to reconnect with the landscape in a sociable and creative way. Artspace Cinderford are the Project Co-ordinators who manage, develop and deliver the programme.

We worked in partnership with the Forestry Commission, Forest of Dean District Council, Dementia Adventure , the Alzheimer's Society and with the Forest of Dean Dementia Alliance in setting up the mindSCAPE Project .

All sessions held on Tuesday mornings from 11am - 1.30pm. Each session includes lunch and free transport if required. To take part in any further workshops you must book on the sessions by contacting Hannah Elton-Wall on 01594 825 111 ext 4 email hannah@artspacecinderford.org

We recently held a conference to celebrate the project in it's final year of BIG Lottery funding. The day brought together carers, volunteers and professionals to learn more about and discuss the project, and get first hand experience of mindSCAPE activities. The presentations from the day can be found below:
