On the third Friday of each month, people living with dementia and their care partners are inspired to respond creatively to works of art in the Gallery’s collection in the Tim Fairfax Learning Studio. Trained educators support all participants to engage in a group setting designed to enhance social sharing, collaboration and confidence. Art and Dementia: Art with Friends utilises chairs with arms to provide comfort and safety. Visitors receive photocopied reproductions of the works of art discussed as well as their own work. Mobility aids, such as motorised scooters, wheelchairs, and wheelie walkers are available on request from the Information Desk. Call the phone number provided to book a motorised scooter in advance.
