In the Picture invites people living with dementia and their family, friends or professional carers to visit an exhibition at Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre and discuss with others in a safe and welcoming environment. The next In the Picture tour will take place on 3 October 2017. 

These special tours are about making observations, describing and building connections; allowing each person the time to comfortably observe and experience the space and artwork. This seated tour includes light refreshments as part of the social and friendly approach.

She has also provided consultations and delivered programming at museums and galleries in Ireland, Northern Ireland and Lithuania.
