Since its inception in 2010, New York-based non-profit organization Arts & Minds has been partnering museums and community spaces in the city to bring art-based experiences to persons with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias (ADRD) and their care partners. In the first half of this experiential session, you will participate in an art-viewing program alongside Arts & Minds care partners to explore firsthand the impact that art-based experiences can have on caregiving relationships. Following which, attendees will join in a facilitated dialogue to offer their reflections on the earlier art conversational experience. Public Humanities Fellow Bing Quek, a philosopher-of-education by training, will also share insights from her year-long research project comprising fieldwork and interviews with five pairs of care partners.
To facilitate a conducive group size for the experience, the number of attendees will be capped at 15 persons. Please indicate your interest to attend the event by completing this form by Wednesday, May 4th, 5PM ET to confirm your spot and receive the Zoom link.
