On 24 October Arts OutWest’s arts and health coordinator Cristine McMillan with Arts Snacks facilitators Cath McNamara and Ro Burns presented a workshop at the WHRN2022 Research Symposium at Western Plans Cultural Central Dubbo. The workshop was based on the Virtual Art Snacks program that Arts OutWest (AOW) offers to residents online in Multi-Purpose Services in WNSWLHD. Kate Smith was the MC for the event.
Christine discussed the outcomes of the Virtual Art Snacks program. Cath and Ro guided attendees through a series of integrated visual arts and movement activities, which were greatly enjoyed. Cath’s movement work is based on the Body Weather philosophy and Ro’s visual arts presentation techniques are based on the teachings of the National Gallery of Australia, Art and Dementia program.
