Highlanes Gallery in Drogheda 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. Monthly gallery-based sessions take place for people with dementia and their carers, focusing on a few selected works from the temporary exhibition programme and the Drogheda Municipal Art Collection.
Through the programme, people have an opportunity to look at art more closely, in a caring, friendly and social environment, discussing the pieces over tea, coffee and cake, and giving their opinions in a non-judgemental setting.
New participants are welcome, even just to try it out.
