We are so excited to see Music Memory Box finally on Kickstarter!
Music Memory Box originated in our Designing for the Future project at the University of Brighton in which designer Chloe Meineck took part back in 2011. Eight years and lots of research, prototyping, dedication and energy later, the Music Memory Box is now being made available to the public for the first time.
The Music Memory Box is a simple kit which can be filled with meaningful objects, music and photographs. All three combine together to help unlock and recall memories in a simple and tactile way.
It’s like a personal jukebox.
While visiting her Great Gran who was living with dementia, Chloe witnessed the transformative effects of music. Finding that there was a lack of specialised and personal dementia music products, Chloe decided to create her own – and Music Memory Box was born. Since then Chloe has developed the box alongside hundreds of people living with dementia, families and carers across the UK and Japan.

**UPDATE** We are really pleased to confirm that Music Memory Box made its Kickstarter target raising over £27,000 to enable Chloe and the team to start making Music Memory Boxes available to everyone who needs one! A fantastic achievement.
