Art & Dementia is a 90 minute social and creative tour of exhibitions created specifically for people living with dementia and their carers. The sessions 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.
Art & Dementia is a great opportunity for those living with dementia and their carers to reconnect, and to connect with their peers. It aims to combat social isolation and provide opportunities for attendees to develop ongoing quality relationships.
Art & Dementia is presented for free with all materials provided. Everyone is welcome to attend as many sessions that suit you.
Pure joy as you wake to the sunrise. Awe as you make it to the snowy peak. A sense of adventure as you motor across red plains. The relief of rejuvenation as you wade into an alpine stream. Connection as you taste native, fragrant leaves. A sense of belonging as you return to your favourite holiday house. Freedom as you dash into the waves. Discover the endless feelings a visit to NSW can inspire.
Destination NSW acknowledges and respects Aboriginal people as the state’s first people and nations and recognises Aboriginal people as the Traditional Owners and occupants of New South Wales land and water.
