Arts and Minds Retro-spectives with the Osgoode Township Museum

About This Program

Participants take a closer look at rural and agricultural artifacts from Osgoode Township as they discuss and learn about the art and culture of agriculture. Hosts Caitlyn McDougall, Museum’s Education Officer and Patrick Chisholm, Collections Officer will create an interactive tour of Osgoode Township’s rural and agricultural tools.

The Arts and Minds series is an opportunity for people living with dementia and their partner or a friend to explore and experience art. Working on art projects creates a sense of accomplishment, purpose, and provides an opportunity for self-expression.
