Event description
Take part in the Memory Room workshops, we tailor the 1hr 30min sessions for people living with dementia and their carers.

About this event

You are invited to take part in the Memory Room workshops at Newcastle Libraries.

Art therapist, Alice Ropata, will draw upon images and items from our Local Studies collection and current exhibitions from the Lovett Gallery to enable the participant to take a journey back in time.

A photograph can evoke much more than a memory. The images in the Memory Room will encourage conversation, share stories, laughter and connection.

We tailor the 1hr 30min sessions for people living with dementia and their carers.

All efforts are being taken to make our library programs safe and inclusive. To help make our programs safer we require all participants to book in advance online. Unfortunately, we won’t have space for drop ins. If you are unwell, or someone in your household is unwell, please stay home. If you cannot make it to a program please cancel your ticket, so someone else can join in the fun.
