Latest 'Making Sense' Newsletter

Summer 2012

Dear reader,

Our latest newsletter brings you news from our recent work. It looks at how we've been using animation competitions and sensory-rich visits to connect people with nature, food and farming, how international poets are helping us bring creativity and meaning to the lives of people with dementia, ways in which we've been using sensory mapping to review and enhance the visitor experience and how our Social Sustainability Toolkit is helping make capital builds more inclusive so they can be enjoyed by everyone.


Amazing animations - From funky chickens to pigs in talent shows, these fantastic short animations include the winners from our national animation competition, run in partnership with Aardman and part of our Let Nature Feed Your Senses project.

International digital artists are helping us give people with dementia a voice - As part of our Creative Spaces project, Sensory Trust and FEAST have commissioned international artists working in digital media to create visual interpretations of poetry written with people with dementia in Cornwall.

How does heritage feel? In this article published in the Interpretation Journal, we look at how our sensory mapping tool can help explore and improve the visitor experience.

Social sustainability, the missing link - We developed the Social Sustainability Toolkit to integrate inclusive design in the design and build of new developments, making sure they think about the people they are being designed for.

Sensory rich visits are connecting people with farming, food and nature - In our Let Nature Feed Your Senses project, sensory-rich visits have been happening on farms across the country. Our recent LNFYS conference was a great success, bringing together many of the farmers and community leaders involved.

And don't forget... Sensory Trust is now using social media - Although we like nothing more than meeting people face to face, with increasingly busy lives and costly travel we know we need to embrace different ways of keeping in touch. Social media to the rescue! We are on Facebook and Twitter, and we have a Let Nature Feed Your Senses facebook page too. All are easy to find or follow the links on our website pages. See you in the virtual world!
