Creative Expressions is program for people with early-mid stage dementia run by the Alzheimer’s Society of Brant, Haldimand, Norfolk, Hamilton and Halton. Based on the Meet Me at MOMA program designed by the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Creative Expressions aims to help dementia patients and a guest make a personal connection through art. Participants spend time looking at art, talking about its properties and engaging in its making. The goal of the program is not the end product but the process and the connection with other participants. This exhibition shares outcomes of the Creative Expressions program.
