Honored to be Guest Judge- Images to promote memories and reminiscing - Via Dr Terri Porrett and Roy Lilly


Hi 

With great thanks to Dr Terri Porrett  @gbtpo & Roy Lilley @RoyLilley for the kind invite and great Honor to be the guest Judge on the 'Images to promote memories and reminiscing' Project 

 Dr Terri Porrett ( @gbtpo) & Roy Lilley (@RoyLilley ) set up the website www.academyoffabulousartstuff.com a couple of months ago. The website is a not for profit venture which raises money for designated charities by making images available for download. Both Terri 
and Roy  have a gallery and there is a guest gallery.

 People share photographs and sketches with them,which they place on the guest gallery,each month there are  themed projects with the winners receiving a FabArt badge.

The current project 'Images to promote memories and reminiscing' arose from a reflective piece Dr Terri wrote 



" I wrote about the impact that images from the website had in promoting memories and conversation for my mother and some of her friends. Roy then also wrote about the subject in his letter. The response to the reflection was somewhat overwhelming and produced a lot of positive discussion about the importance of stimulating individuals with dementia to promote memories and conversation about their lives and experiences."

Myself and the Dementia Carer Voices team are very honored and looking forward to viewing,receiving and Judging the inspiring images 

Tommy
