Meet Me at UMMA: A program for people with early-stage dementia and their caregivers
Meet Me at UMMA invites people with early-stage memory loss to enjoy a guided gallery experience along with family members or caregivers. This program is designed for people who live at home and their companions.
Meet Me at UMMA is based on the premise that although memory may have been compromised, senses are generally alive and well. Facilitated by a small group of experienced UMMA docents using a multi-sensory approach, at times complemented by music and props, the tours offer community members with dementia and their caregivers an opportunity to engage with art, connect with each other, and "bring their senses alive" through visual art.
This April’s program will include a look at the work of Ghanian-born artist El Anatsui whose monumental wall and floor sculptures make engaging and dynamic works of art from the simplest, often discarded materials in the current exhibition, When I Last Wrote You About Africa.
