Conversations Art & Dementia is a 90 minute social tour of exhibitions created specifically for people living with dementia and their carers. The tours are guided by a trained facilitator who uses art as a trigger for conversation and self-expression through art making, enabling visitors to express their thoughts and emotions in a friendly and supportive environment.

About the The Maitland Archive, project 

In The Maitland Archive, artist Luke Thurgate will use wall drawing to create a relational dialogue with members of Maitland’s community. He will create an evolving wall drawing in the gallery space.

Local people are invited to bring small, non-precious objects that have memories and personal narratives attached to them.

The objects contributed by community members will be displayed in the space surrounded by Luke’s drawings for the duration of the project.
