1 December 2023 - 31 January 2024 (LexIcon, Level 4)
Friday Friends is an exhibition of various art works produced by the members of the Living Well with Dementia art group. This weekly group is facilitated by Caroline Hyland who is an illustrator and art facilitator with a background in Visual Communications, Art Education and Occupational Therapy. The LWwD weekly art group is open to all but is particularly welcoming to people living with dementia. Every Friday, using a variety of media, Caroline guides the group in the creation of beautiful artwork and provides an opportunity for participants to engage in meaningful self-expression, pleasure and enjoyment. This exhibition showcases the innate talent and artistic ability that lives within us all.
This exhibition promotes Living Well with Dementia and advocates for a society to see the person first and not the disease.
