The Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) is part of the Azure Network, an alliance of cultural organisations that aim for greater inclusion of people with dementia in an Irish cultural context. IMMA offers special tailor-made tours of specific artworks so that participants have the chance to discuss and explore the exhibitions. New dates for spring 2017 have been announced for people with dementia, their carers and friends.
All tours are delivered by IMMA staff members who are specially trained in facilitating art tours for people with dementia. The tour finishes with an optional complimentary tea or coffee and a chat in IMMA’s on-site Itsa café.

What to expect?
Read this recent blog to get more details on what you can expect from Azure tours at IMMA, and to find out more about the Azure Network nationwide.
The Azure programme is inspired by the ‘Meet Me at MoMA’ programme for people with dementia at MoMA, New York. Azure’s primary objective is to reduce the barriers experienced by people with dementia and their carers in accessing cultural organisations, and to ensure that every aspect of their engagement with these organisations is sensitive to their needs.
