House of Memories

Vote to help House of Memories' film win an international award

We’re incredibly excited that our House of Memories – Dementia Awareness for Family Carers film has been shortlisted for the Museums in Short Awards (in partnership with ICOM Italia and the European Museum Academy).

The Museums in Short Awards is an international contest for short videos and aims to share the most effective and innovative works in the field of museum communication and visitor experience.

Our video is up for the Public Special Mention Award and the Museums in Short Award.


House of Memories is National Museums Liverpool’s dementia awareness programme which offers training, access to resources and museum-based activities for carers, enabling them to provide person-centred care for people living with dementia.

As part of the House of Memories programme we have trained more than 11,000 carers and have recently launched a new dementia-friendly website and an online shop where each purchase supports us to deliver our activities and resources for carers.

The shortlisted video focusses on the training available to family and friends of people living with dementia – providing a number of practical approaches to enhancing communication and building positive meaningful relationships.

The Public Special Mention Award is open to public voting, and our video is up against clips from museums in Italy, Greece, Russia, Croatia, Norway, Sweden and Serbia to name but a few. Please help us win by voting now.
