‘’ [The Art links program] is really based on the kind of dialogic approach where we ask questions […] it’s very organic. […] It allows a nice interaction between the person with dementia, his or her caregiver as well as within the group itself.’’

  • Art links us. The free Art Links sessions are offered to community associations that work with persons living with Alzheimer's and carers as part of the Sharing the Museum program. The group activities consist of a brief thematic tour of 3 to 5 artworks in the Museum’s galleries and consist of dialogues between the Museum mediator (educator) and the participants, caregivers and/or companions. The in-person visits are followed by a coffee and cookie break and a creative art workshop.
