Art conversations

The Art and Alzheimer’s Program of gallery tours provides people living with dementia with an opportunity to connect with the world in enriching and life-enhancing ways. A discussion based tour of works of art provides intellectual stimulation and social inclusion which supports well-being and increased quality of life.

People living with dementia often become isolated.  Discussion based on works of art allows participants to demonstrate knowledge, engage in interpretation, express emotions and recall memories. Participants have the opportunity to maximise their intellectual capacity.
