Launched in 2019, The Moving Memory Project embodies its founders’ vision of bringing together artists, caregivers, and seniors to create a community of care surrounding issues connected to memory loss and destigmatizing the diagnosis of dementia, with the ultimate goal of raising awareness to increase funding until a cure is found. “Works like this can help the world think and talk about Alzheimer’s in important new ways” says co-producer David Shenk, whose writings on Alzheimer’s and dementia garnered him international acclaim as an authority on the subject.
