In collaboration with the Dementia Society of Ottawa and Renfrew County, the Gallery invites you to a focused online program for individuals living with dementia and their caregivers. These programs provide opportunities for people living with dementia to experience “in the moment” pleasure as they consider art and connect with others. Everyone is encouraged to share their insights and enjoy artworks from the comfort of their homes.

To learn more or register contact the Dementia Society of Ottawa and Renfrew County at 613-523-4004 or info@dsorc.org. Places are limited.
