Latest project: Remembering the Past - Building the Future 2015-17
“Remembering the Past-Building the Future” is an eighteen-month international project within the framework of the “Europe for Citizens” programme which aims to show how memory, despite its fragility, manages to preserve the past against the destructive work of time and brings along the hope for a better future.
This is a partnership project involving the European Reminiscence Network and the University of Greenwich.

Memory Grand Challenge: Exploring links between reminiscence in dementia care and oral history
The above seminar was held at the University of Greenwich on Thursday 13th October 2016 | Time: 3pm – 6pm
Over the last three years, key members of the Oral History Society have participated in the new Training and Apprenticeship scheme in Reminiscence in Dementia Care. They have worked with older people with dementia and their family carers revisiting the key stages in their lives using creative arts-based approaches in order to support the sense of identity and self-worth of the participants.
The results of this work have been significant for the families involved and were discussed at the seminar which is led by Pam and included several key speakers.
