Dementia is the most common cause of death in the UK, but access to good end of life care is highly unequal.

Dementia Journeys is a new exhibition at Science Gallery London that powerfully presents the experiences of those who care for people dying with dementia, and uncovers ways in which care could be improved.

The stories of the carers will be told through portrait photography by two-times winner of the BJP Portrait of Britain prize, Allie Crewe, and comic strips by pioneering cartoonist, doctor and storyteller, Ian Williams, alongside interactive elements and games.

Curated by Tim Harrison, the exhibition has been created in response to Empowering Better End of-Life Dementia Care (EMBED-Care) – a 6-year research programme jointly led by University College London and the Cicely Saunders Institute at King’s College London that aims to generate a step-change in how care is provided for people at any age with any type of dementia.
