Personal profile

Jayne Lloyd a practice-based PhD student. Her research explores the use of reminiscence and inter-disciplinary arts practices (theatre, music, fine art and dance) with older people, including those with dementia, living in care settings. The research focuses on Reminiscence Arts and Dementia – Impact on Quality of Life (RADIQL), a three year programme created by Age Exchange and funded by Guy's and St Thomas's Charity. The research includes observations of Age Exchange practitioners’ work alongside three of Jayne's own practice-based interventions. Key areas of research include, the reciprocity of the work, the performativity of the care setting, the embedding of reminiscence into the arts process and the creative dialogue between practitioners from different disciplinary backgrounds and between their work in the care setting and their broader practice.

Jayne graduated from Byam Shaw, St Martin's, University of the Arts London, with an MA in Fine Art in 2010. She has a studio with Bow Arts Trust and regularly exhibits and completes site-specific commissions and residencies both nationally and internationally. She has 10 years’ experience in community engagement, development and facilitation roles, working with people from a wide variety of backgrounds, age groups and with a range of learning needs. Prior to starting the PhD, she worked as part of a research team led by Professor Helen Nicholson evaluating Age Exchange's reminiscence arts projects in SLAM care settings across South London.
