Summary

The wellbeing programme at Exeter's Royal Albert Memorial Museum & Art Gallery (RAMM) was designed to help people make the most of life, regardless of the challenges they were facing. During 2015, RAMM worked with people with dementia and their carers; people with mental health issues; and people learning English or improving their literacy skills.

RAMM’s collections range from stuffed birds to 150-year-old costumes, artefacts from around the world to local landscape paintings and archaeological finds. For some people, objects provide a starting point for a journey of self-discovery, a way to tell their own story and build self-esteem. For others, exploring objects is a shared experience in the moment which stimulates the mind and liberates people to be themselves.
