How we helped.

Artful Moments was created by the Art Gallery of Hamilton with Stradea. This 6-module online training program provides meaningful, individualized, and engaging activities using our collections and exhibitions that encourage participants to be creative, to express themselves and to connect with others through shared experiences. Our focus is on enhancing the strengths and abilities of the participant, regardless of their abilities, state of health or social circumstance, while presenting activities at a level of engagement and rigor expected of gallery and museum programming. We focus on the process and the experience rather than a final product or demonstration of learning.

Combining specialized strategies for dementia care with creative activities, the program explores how these experiences can help to open up a world of in-the-moment engagement and enjoyment for the participants with dementia, while providing opportunities for social connection and shared experience with loved ones and peers.
