A Memory Café Series

Featuring the Folk Art of Maud Lewis

Please feel free to use this 4 session series to launch a virtual or in-person Memory Café in your community!

This series consists of four 1-1.5 hour sessions held either virtually or in-person. Generally groups have 1-2 facilitators and consist of a maximum of 20 participants total to ensure all voices have a chance to be heard. Each session follows a basic structure of art sharing, followed by musical entertainment, storytelling, and casual conversation.

Special thanks to The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia for permission to show these Maud Lewis paintings taken from their 2020 Maud Lewis calendar.
