Arts Memory Café
People living with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias have a new opportunity to connect with the power of visual art. MMoCA is partnering with the Alzheimer’s & Dementia Alliance of Wisconsin (ADAW) on the Arts Memory Café, which will take place at the museum. Starting on January 16, 2020 and taking place monthly through June, this free program combats loneliness and fosters engagement by creating opportunities to connect with others on the dementia journey. The Arts Memory Café is offered from 1-3 pm on the third Thursday of each month on a drop-in basis.
A Memory Café is a monthly gathering place for people with memory loss, early Alzheimer’s or other dementias, and their family and friends. The Arts Memory Café will include creative activities each month, with occasional talks by featured artists. Anyone who requires assistance to participate must be accompanied by someone who can provide that support.
MMoCA adds this new effort to Meeting of Minds at MMoCA, a program that involves participants in the ADAW’s Meeting of Minds program in guided exhibition tours. Detailed information about ADAW programs, including the Arts Memory Café, is available at www.alzwisc.org
Funding for Meeting of the Minds at MMoCA has been provided by Qual Line Fence Corporation.
