Join us onsite at the Art Gallery of New South Wales for this inclusive and flexible program designed for people living with dementia, their care partners, and communities. These sessions support self-expression, social inclusion, connection and improved wellbeing through visual and intellectual stimulation in response to the engagement in art.

Each session includes a tour of selected artworks on display, a sensory and tactile-based art-making workshop, and morning tea.
