Podcast: What’s Up Bainbridge:
BIMA to offer programs for people with memory loss
If you’ve been looking for ways to help build connection and community for someone with mild memory loss, the Bainbridge Island Art Museum has two exciting new options for you to consider.
Meet Me at the Movies, sponsored in partnership with the Frye Art Museum, offers short film clips of beloved film classics followed by audience discussion, and will begin at 10:30 am on May 25.
Look Again, which is subtitled Early Stage Memory Loss Guided Art Discussions, is sponsored in partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association. It’s a monthly facilitated art discussion in the museum galleries for people with mild memory loss and their care partners, and will be offered on the first Friday of every month, starting June 1.
In this podcast, BIMA education director Kristin Tollefson explains how the programs came to be, how they fit into the Museum’s mission, and what participants can expect.
Both programs are free, but the Look Again program does require pre-registration. To inquire about registration, please reach out to Kenna Little, Alzheimer Association’s Early Stage Memory Loss Manager at 206-529-3868 or email@example.com.
