Museum on the Move

How do we make meaningful contact?

Artist Sheila Farrell worked with the Museum on the Move in Hollyfields Care Home in Kidderminster. Hollyfields specialises in dementia care.

We arrived with some art materials and some objects from the museum… We sat down and we listened…

Listen actively
Listen carefully
Make time
Make space
Be calm and considerate
Be sensitive…
Be patient
Be aware
Be flexible
Be open
Be in the moment
Be human
Recognise the individual
Mark the moment
Each of us has a voice
We made pictures, poems and models
We made conversation
