Mindful Connections Online is a free virtual program for people with dementia and their caregivers. Every month trained guides facilitate an online experience designed to promote engagement with works of art and other participants.
This December artist, educator, and researcher Magda Kaczmarska joins Mindful Connections to lead participants in joyful movement. After discussing pieces from the Rubin’s collection, participants will physicalize their visual and emotional reactions with simple movements. Movements can be done seated or standing. No prior experience is necessary. All ages and abilities are welcome!
This program takes place on select Thursdays in 2020. Register to receive your link to connect.
Mindful Connections is supported by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the Milton & Sally Avery Arts Foundation.
