Conversations: Art & Dementia 2019
February 14 | 10:30 am — 11:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:30am on Tuesday and Thursday, repeating until March 29, 2019
At MRAG we offer engaging social tours of current exhibitions and art spaces, tailored specifically for people living with dementia and their carers. The tours are guided by art therapist, Nicole Lemaitre who delivers a program which encourages discussions, self expression, stories, and laughter, enabling visitors to express their thoughts and emotions. Morning tea is included to encourage lively participation.
These tours have proved very successful in engaging this audience by using art as a trigger for conversation and dialogue. The visitors gain intellectual stimulation and opportunities for further discussion between participants, carers and facilitators, all in a friendly and supportive environment.
