LET'S TALK is a new initiative by the NI Museums Council for its members to share project news and ideas, get to know partner organisations and to promote debate and discussion.

08 June 2020

 

LETS’ TALK will take place once a month, on a Tuesday at 3pm (grab a coffee) and will last between 45 minutes and 90 minutes.  It will be delivered through Microsoft Teams and the number of attendees will be limited to 25. 

Booking will be essential so we can send you an invitation to join the meeting.

We are pleased to announce the first LET’S TALK event:

Date: Tuesday 23 June 2020, 3pm

Title: LET’S TALKLove2Move Online

Summary: Love2Move is a British Gymnastics Foundation dementia friendly chair-based exercise programme.  In January and February 2020, a pilot of Love2Move and reminiscence activities took place at three local museums registered as working to become dementia friendly – Mid-Antrim Museum, NI War Memorial and Tower Museum.  In response to lockdown, an online pilot of this programme has been developed and is now underway connecting these three museums to local care homes for virtual reminiscence and exercise sessions in a bid to address social isolation during the current COVID situation.

This session will take the form of three short presentations followed a Q&A and discussion.  Presenters will be Michael Fryer (Outreach Officer, NI War Memorial), Karen Hutchinson (Love to Move practitioner) and Rachel McCance (Development Officer, NI Museums Council).

Start time: 3pm

Finish: 4pm
