Academic review published to commemorate the 10th anniversary of House of Memories at National Museums Liverpool
Added on Friday, January 13th, 2023
As part of our long-standing research collaboration with National Museums Liverpool (NML), the ICC’s Kerry Wilson was invited to write a commemorative paper to mark the 10th anniversary of NML’s multiple award-winning, international dementia awareness programme House of Memories in 2022.
The published paper – Advancing the Role of Museums in Health and Social Care – reflects on the development and impact of House of Memories as a flagship cultural intervention in dementia care. This includes its response and contribution to a number of key policy drivers, with examples from the body of research and evaluation work that has run in parallel with the strategic and operational development of the programme over the past 10 years. The paper also outlines the current and future potential of House of Memories to build on these achievements, retaining the programme’s position and influence at the vanguard of the international culture, health and wellbeing field.
Many congratulations to the team at NML on this significant milestone and ongoing impact and success of the programme.
