Azure dementia-friendly tours at Highlanes Gallery Winter / Spring 2018

Date posted: 24 January 2018

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.

Winter/Spring Dates 2018:

Friday 26 January from 10.30am-12noon, looking at artwork in the Drogheda Municipal Art Collection.

Friday 9 March from 10.30am-12noon, looking at the exhibition Landmarks and Lifeforms: Frieda Meaney and Danny Osborne.

Friday 13 April from 10.30am-12noon, looking at the Drogheda Municipal Art Collection – The Natural World.

If you are interested in the programme, please contact Hilary Kelly and Aoife Ruane at gallery on 041-9803311 and aruane@highlanes.ie/ info@highlanes.ie
