A Virtual Memory Café series featuring

artists and musicians of Nova Scotia

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 approximately once a month. Generally groups have 1-2 facilitators and should be consist of a maximum of 20 participants (persons with memory challenges and family members or caregivers). This number ensures all voices have a chance to be heard and that everyone has the opportunity to socialize. Each session follows a basic structure of art sharing, followed by musical entertainment, storytelling and casual conversation.
