The Art of Working with Visitors with Memory Loss: A New Gallery Program

Lorena Bradford, head of accessible programs, education division, National Gallery of Art. Just Us at the National Gallery of Art is a new education program designed for people with memory loss and their care partners. The program seeks to create positive experiences for all participants and to create space where people with dementia and other forms of memory loss can connect with the Gallery’s collection and with their loved ones. In 2017, the pilot phase concluded in August and the program resumes in September. In this presentation held on September 18, 2017, as part of the Works in Progress series, Lorena Bradford shares insights and lessons learned during the pilot phase of this inspiring program.
