The Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) and The University of Queensland's School of Psychology, in partnership with the Internal Medicine & Dementia Research Unit at The Prince Charles Hospital, are pursuing research on the benefits of QAGoMA's programs targeting older community-dwelling older people and particularly people living with dementia and their care partners.

The Art and Dementia Program at QAGOMA has been running for 6 years and is a free, participant-focused experience for members of the community with dementia who are living at home, attending day respite or residing in aged care. The program is structured around the key principles of reminiscence, validation and socialization. Viewing art and participating in guided creative activities within a dementia-accessible format allows persons living with dementia and their care partners to share an experience that makes them feel included and socially connected.

Join us for this webinar as we explore how the collaboration continues to demonstrate how UQ is the leading age friending university in the southern hemisphere.

About Professor Nancy Pachana: Nancy is the program lead for UQ Age Friendly University & Healthy Ageing Initiatives. Nancy will be joined by Debbie Brittain from QAGoMA who is the project officer delivering the initiative.
