Still Connecting, But Online
Our commitment to protecting the well-being of our community led us to suspend all in-person programming early in the COVID-19 pandemic. True to our mission, we searched for ways to combat the increased isolation and decreased opportunities for creative and social engagement among people living with dementia and their care partners. This led us to create ARTZ-Connect. Now you can attend some of your favorite ARTZ programs from the comfort of your own home!
This program is free of charge to participants.
ARTZ-Connect is the same ARTZ programs you know and love, but facilitated over video conferencing software.
All you need to join is a computer, phone, or tablet. Just like in our in-person programs, we visit the collections from museums like Woodmere Art Museum and the Brandywine River Museum. We’ve even introduced some new programs that are unique to ARTZ-Connect!
As always, we aim to create an inclusive environment for everyone, where participants are free to share their thoughts, their laughter, and their joy with each other. Sharing space with you online even allows us to do some things we’ve never been able to do before! Read below to learn more about how ARTZ-Connect differs from and overlaps with our in-person programming.
