Every First Tuesday is one element of Lakeland Arts' Enriched by Moments programme of activity and events designed to engage people living with dementia and their carers. This monthly meeting at Abbot Hall Art Gallery seeks to generate conversation and enquiry inspired by works of art. These enjoyable sessions are inspired by a belief that creative and cultural experiences can be enormously rewarding and meaningful for people living with dementia. Conversation stimulates brain activity, aids communication skills and enhances feelings of well being. Each session creates a supportive environment where everyone's responses and ideas are valued and celebrated.
