EMMA continues its art project for elderly people

Espoo Museum of Modern Art (EMMA) continues this spring its art project for elderly people living in long-term care institutions. The project titled "Taide friskaa mieltä ("Art refreshes your mind") offers refreshing and socially rewarding moments for elderly people who are already out of reach of art museums. Remembering and associating are catalysed for example through art works, conversations, story telling and music. The previous project was realized in Puolarmetsä hospital and Aurora care institution in 2007. This time the project delights the every day life of Kustaankartano's (elderly people's centre in Helsinki) inhabitants. Read more about the project in Finnish.
