Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) (Recognised)
QAGOMA provides a regular, free Art and Dementia community program that sees many visitors with dementia and carers coming to spend the morning at the gallery a few times each week, most weeks of the year. We host visitors with dementia from aged care, community groups and individuals living in the community. A large number front-of-house staff have regular interaction with visitors with dementia beyond the scope of the Art and Dementia program. Internal staff training and increasing dementia awareness among staff is an ongoing commitment. Aiming for QAGOMA to be recognised as the first dementia friendly organisation in Brisbane’s Cultural centre Precinct. QAGOMA is a QLD Government institution within Arts QLD, well positioned to lead the way in raising awareness that government departments and cultural institutions can be dementia friendly.
