AGH Dementia Survey Results

Written by: Laurie Kilgour-Walsh


In December 2021 the Art Gallery of Hamilton conducted an online survey of museums, galleries and other cultural organizations across Canada in preparation for a large project.

We asked colleagues across the country about the presence of specialized programs in their organization, and about the comfort and knowledge or experience of staff to present these programs. For those already working with people living with dementia, we asked about successes and challenges, and for those who are not, we asked more about what barriers they experienced and what support was needed.

In total, we received 91 submissions and collected some interesting data.

This tells us that there is a will and a need.

Artful Moments: Shared Learning is a resource of collected knowledge and experience based on our work. Our hope is that by sharing our work, we will inspire yours.
