Mirfield's Creative Art Hub are hosting a two-month multi-media exhibition about people with dementia.

A special project which takes a closer look at people with dementia is now open to the public.

Soul Journey, the work of arts company Verd de Gris, writer Paula Sutherland and photographer and filmmaker Geoff Brokate, is on show at Mirfield’s Creative Arts Hub until April 11.

The main inspiration for the free exhibition is Jack, who has spent a lifetime walking the hills of the Upper Calder Valley.

Now with dementia, Jack retraces his footsteps and considers the poetic and musical memories of his time wandering that landscape.

The results include an installation, original writing, a series of still photographs and a film that weaves together spoken word, moving images and an original score.

The Hub gallery is open Wednesday to Friday, 10am-5pm, and Saturday, 10am-3pm. Contact the gallery on 01924 492775 for more details.
