I went to the whistle-stop talk at Media City about the multi-disciplined Dementia Design Group at the University of Salford.
It was really interesting to hear what work is going on and the detail given to how people feel within spaces.

This monthly event welcomes research staff, students and the wider community, to share interests, and stimulate new ideas or collaborative projects.
Each event will focus on a different theme, with invited speakers from the across the University community relating it to their area of expertise.
They will each give PechaKucha presentations of 6 minutes 40 seconds (20 slides of 20 seconds each), aimed at stimulating discussion and prompting collaboration and new ideas. Networking and informal discussions will follow for the last half an hour.
This event alternates between the University's main campus and the MediaCityUK campus at Salford Quays, and for Thu 27 June this will take place in the Egg foyer at MediaCityUK with speakers from the Dementia Design Group.
