MEMORY CONNECTIONS

FOR VISITORS WITH DEMENTIA AND THEIR CAREGIVERS

Thursday, September 14, 2023
11:00 AM–12:00 PM

Memory Connections is a free program for people living with dementia and their caregivers. On the second Thursday of every month, trained teaching artists and special performers facilitate an online experience designed to promote engagement between participants and the art and cultures of the Himalayan region. 

In addition to an in-depth look at two artworks from the Museum’s collection, the September program includes a mindful movement workshop in partnership with GROOVE NYC. Explore a variety of styles and genres that encourage you to feel good in your body while nurturing mind, heart, and soul. This workshop is accessible for all levels of mobility, as participants have the option to remain seated during the activity.
