Memory Café Series 3


Fun With Nature!

Featuring the Folk Art of Maud Lewis

Please feel free to use this 5 session series to launch a virtual or in person Memory Café in your community!

This series consists of five 1-1.5 hour sessions held either virtually or in person approximately once a month. Generally groups have 1-2 facilitators and should 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 or interactive workshop, storytelling and casual conversation. This series includes a bilingual clay workshop.

Links to the interactive workshops are provided and a "Pick Your Music Video" button takes you to a choice of Memory Café performances by Nova Scotian musicians. We recommend that facilitators download the PDF and video for each session ahead of time to prevent internet or bandwidth issues. Display them full-screen to give participants the best viewing experience.

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