During my time as Reading Champ with Shetland Library I have had loads of amazing experiences. One of my favourites to date was an afternoon spent in the company of the local branch of Alzheimer Scotland.
Following that session I wrote a series of reflections which accompany striking photographs by John Coutts. This exhibition is now running in Mareel till the 4th of November as part of Luminate, which is a festival which happens throughout Scotland.
The exhibition specifically aims to help dispel the stigma attached to dementia. It was a lovely peerie project to be involved in.
Go see it.
