Wellness@WAG: Art to Inspire

Art to Inspire is a program designed to creatively engage people living with dementia, and their care partners, with visual art. Developed in partnership by the Winnipeg Art Gallery, the Alzheimer Society of Manitoba, and University of Manitoba College of Rehabilitation Sciences.
Led by specially trained art educators and artists, Art to Inspire offers six afternoon sessions in the Gallery where participants can enjoy conversations, works of art, and artmaking in a supportive setting. Each session will explore a different theme, and engage participants in different ways that celebrate present-moment awareness and meaningful creative expression.
