On 14- 15 June,  M&GSQ staff, Debra Beattie and  Ann Baillie were privileged to attend a two day workshop at Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery run by Adriane Boag and Sally Collignon from the National Gallery of Australia. The Art and Alzheimer’s Training Workshop is designed for arts and health professionals, volunteers and carers and supports regional gallery and aged care facilities to develop their own gallery program for people living with dementia and their carers.  At the workshop we listened to a talk on Dementia from Ann Bingham, viewed demonstration tours conducted by Adriane Boag with visiting groups from a local aged care facility, learned about communication techniques, planned a gallery tour and brainstormed approaches to developing sustainable programs  at  the Toowoomba and Warwick regional galleries.
