Living Brands is a wellbeing programme geared towards supporting neurodivergent communities through creative reminiscence using Museum resources covering consumer culture from the Victorian Era through the present day.
We combine heritage and museum learning with wellbeing through creative reminiscence sessions bringing packaged products to life through their stories, sounds, scents, and handling.
Our outreach team delivers sessions at care homes and day centres as well as memory cafes.
You are warmly welcome to explore our brand resources at home by downloading our free activity guides, (click the blue buttons below) and by playing our Brand Challenge Game. To enquire about an in person or virtual reminiscing session enquire HERE
