Creative Encounters: Art and Dementia

Creative Encounters: Art and Dementia programs offer engaging and creative experiences at The Art Gallery of Western Australia for people living with dementia together with their family members/carers.

The Creative Encounters sessions have been specifically designed for participants to attend as a duo with engaging art experiences and social support offered for both.

The fortnightly sessions have been developed to engage participants in art making studio experiences and interactive gallery tours.

$30 per couple for 1 x workshop and 1 x tour.
Participants have the option to pay $30 monthly or pay upfront for the full semester.

*This enables delivery of a quality program, well-trained staff and finest art materials.
