About the event

Arts for health practitioners, dr. Simona Karpavičiūtė and Ieva Petkutė, in an open discussion and demonstrative workshop will share their work in developing multisensory activity programmes in Lithuanian museums. Their experience suggests that the diversity of sensory stimulation not only creates ways of participation for people living with dementia and their carers; it can also promote equal participation and improve communication in care relationships.By sharing the results of the research project “An evaluation of the accessibility of Lithuanian Art Museums services for people from socially excluded groups”, Ieva and Simona will also reflect on the experiences and attitudes of museum professionals and target audiences on the topic of accessibility.
