Creative Space for those living with Alzheimer's and Dementia
Creative Space for those living with AlzheimerIn September 2015, Highlanes Gallery announced the launch of a pilot programme developed especially for people living with Alzheimer’s and dementia.

After the initial programme, the gallery has continued these sessions which focus on a few selected works from the temporary exhibition programme and the Drogheda Municipal Art Collection. Through the programme people have an opportunity to look at art more closely, in a caring, friendly and social environment, discussing the pieces and giving their opinions in a non-judgemental setting.
By providing a friendly and inclusive environment in which people can freely participate in active discussion Highlanes Gallery hopes to allow participants, and their carers feel like a more active and visible part of the community.
