Join us for an immersive viewing experience and follow a path through Asia, from Afghanistan to Indonesia, from the 1st to the 21st centuries, meeting key deities and historical figures from the Gallery’s collection of Asian art.

Offered to individuals with their care partners as well as groups, this tour is particularly for people living with younger-onset dementia. It will provide intellectual stimulation and encourage self-expression with an opportunity for participants to articulate their opinions about what they experience.

This is a creative ageing program for people living with dementia and their partners. Includes group discussion, artmaking and morning tea.
