In The Picture for Culture Night with Sarah Ruttle and Sarah Cairns

Dementia Friendly Gallery Programme at Uillinn, West Cork Arts Centre with Sarah Cairns and Sarah Ruttle.

West Cork Arts Centre regularly invites people with dementia, their professional and /or family carers to participate in a facilitated experience exploring the current artwork and exhibition space.

This programme represents a new way for rural Ireland to involve people with dementia, their family members and carers in a local arts facility.

Our sessions are about making observations, describing and building connections. Allowing each person the time to comfortably observe and experience the space and artwork. Each bespoke session facilitates a small group and includes light refreshments as part of the social and friendly approach.

Artist Sarah Ruttle describes, ‘In the Picture is a purposeful investigation of artwork in the gallery. Each session we take time to look at the artwork on exhibit and share space for communication through the senses. We will explore together how we see, feel and react to the artwork.”
