The Art Gallery of Hamilton is proud to have partnered with St. Peter’s Hospital and Foundation for Artful Moments, a unique program that makes art more accessible, experiential and enjoyable for people with dementia and their caregivers.

Artful Moments Information Night and Open House

Wednesdays April 4, May 30, August 29 at 5:30 – 7:00 pm
Please join us for a program preview and a chance to meet other participants. We will tell you more about the program and you’ll have a chance to become familiar with the Gallery.  This event is perfect for prospective participants and support persons.

Please RSVP to access@artgalleryofhamilton.com.

Artful Moments

is a specially designed program to support the interests and abilities of persons with dementia who are living in the community, and their care partners.  Spend time in the Galleries with an AGH Educator who will discuss themes, artists and connections to the art on display, and then join us in our Studio for creative hands-on activities.  Each session will present new art and activities.  Light refreshments will be served.  Participants are encouraged to bring a family-member or care partner to share in the program – these support persons are welcomed at no extra charge.

Spaces are limited.  Pre-registration is required. 

Please note that our program staff have training and experience in working with persons with dementia, however we will not be able to support participants with more advanced needs (such as toileting).  For this reason, we strongly encourage participants to come with a support person.
