Welcome to the Dementia Festival of Ideas - a year-long celebration of the most stimulating thinking, writing and discussion on what dementia means in 2015.
Our exciting Programme has something for everyone. So if you fancy expert Masterclasses or controversial blogs, participative events or online discussion it is all here - with a major conference, a big survey and some real surprises thrown in.
We want everyone to be part of what is going on. So help make it the Festival dementia deserves.
