About us

Rosetta Life changes the way we perceive the elderly and young frail and disabled who live with life limiting illnesses. Our performance, film and writing projects show how these groups can fully contribute to cultural life and how important it is that their voices be heard.

The learning from these projects provides evidence aimed at changing the delivery of care – for example, our art of touch education programme derives from our movement work, and our improvisation arts in dementia care programme derives from our performances with nursing homes.

Over the past 12 years Rosetta Life has worked with over 100 hospices across the UK and internationally.

Rosetta Life give voice to those members of our community living with serious illness, who are often marginalised and isolated. The use of film and media for health advocacy is central to all Rosetta Life projects. A collection of Rosetta Life films can be viewed on the player below.
