Art and Dementia
QAGOMA’s award-winning Art and Dementia Program is a participant-focused gallery experience designed for visitors living with dementia and their care partner. It aims to support psychosocial wellbeing using non-pharmacological intervention approaches.
Slow art viewing of selected artworks incorporates specially curated visual, auditory and narrative prompts that stimulate exploration and reflection. The therapeutic creative making activity invites relaxation and socialisation, supports autonomy, and encourages meaningful engagement.
