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. Lorena Bradford shares insights and lessons learned during the pilot phase of this inspiring program.
