SYDCAE 2018: Celebration of Life


The 2018 South Yorkshire Dementia Creative Arts Exhibition will be taking place at Sheffield Cathedral between 2-8 July with a number of events and an arts exhibition.

Anyone affected by dementia is invited to prepare and submit original creative artwork to this international exhibition: people with dementia, family supporters and friends and paid and volunteer practitioners are all invited to take part.

A sister exhibition in Michigan plans to host it’s 3rd annual event at Detroit Institute of Arts – and images of work from South Yorkshire contributors will be included in this event, too.

Contact SYDCAE for further information about submission arrangements.
