Art and Memories
The Art Gallery of WA's Art and Memories guided tours and Artistic Adventures workshops assist people living with dementia, and their carers or primary support network, to challenge their condition and help develop a creative mind.
Art and Memories is a program provided throughout the year by AGWA's Voluntary Gallery Guides (VGGs) to people living with dementia. Through these guided tours participants can discover how works of art can encourage conversation, contribute knowledge, engage in interpretation, express emotions and recall memories.
The tours delivered by Alzheimer’s Association WA-trained VGGs, and the Artistic Adventures workshops form part of the Gallery's commitment to disability access and inclusion.
