Conversations: Art & Dementia 2019
February 26, 2019 | 10:30 am — 11:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:30 am on Tuesday and Thursday, repeating until December 12, 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 an art therapy trained Facilitator 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.
Max. 10 participants
(To keep groups small and personal)
Sessions are run on Tuesdays and Thursdays during school terms, bookings essential:
