Every Picture Tells a Story
May 1 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Join us for an engaging and informative look at the power of pictures to offer a new view of memory loss. When we look closely at a picture, beyond its surface, we can see layers of story, expression and meaning.

This talk invites us to suspend our preconceptions and explore the possibilities of living fully in the precious present moment with a diagnosis of memory loss. Creative engagement gives us a holistic view–seeing the whole person beyond the disease- so we can uncover pathways to unlock story, celebrate identity & discover well being.

For the person affected by memory loss, caregivers, loved ones, friends and community members. This interactive workshop will help us discover a new way of looking at memory loss for more positive, uplifting moments together.

Workshop Facilitator: Peggy Cahill holds a Master of Education from Lesley University. She directed the ARTZ (Artists for Alzheimer’s) Museum Network for 3 years and went on to develop 4 new museum programs for older adults with memory loss. She believes in the arts as a healing tool for every person to explore, express and empower.
