This program has been developed specifically for those who are supporting a person receiving palliative care.
You’re invited to take some time out for a mindful journey through the Matisse Alive exhibition, where you can explore guided slow-looking techniques and discuss observations and insights in a paced experience.
It’s an opportunity to engage with art and with your own feelings in a supported environment; share experiences with like-minded people; acknowledge your identity apart from your caring role; and enjoy ‘in-the-moment’ pleasure. You’ll also discover how mindful activities can support self-care, and learn skills and strategies that can be transferred to the care environment.
The experience is facilitated by artist and researcher Dr Gail Kenning and Danielle Gullotta, senior access programs producer at the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
The program is a partnership between the Art Gallery, Palliative Care NSW and the University of the University of Technology Sydney.
