Reconnecting older adults to art and their community
Welcoming individuals with memory challenges and their care partners
At the Cape Ann Museum on the third Tuesday of each month from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
The Cape Ann Museum CAM Connections Third Tuesdays program brings art, culture and history to underserved seniors in the Cape Ann community. The program offers personal engagement with the Museum collection through small group art conversations. The heart of the program is to create space for a meaningful experience in the welcoming environment of the Museum, where participants can share responses and reflections as well as form new social connections.
Third Tuesdays offers seniors the experience of slowing down and becoming still to look closely at art with others. During small group conversation, participants view paintings, objects and artifacts in an open-ended discussion format, stimulating personal curiosities and stories, while having fun, growing and learning together.
The Cape Ann Museum, a regional center of local art, history and culture, has a treasured collection that resonates with the personal and collective history of seniors with ties to the region. Through Third Tuesdays, the Museum also serves as a community center, bringing people together. Committed to improving the lives of seniors, CAM Connections values the arts as healing and believes active engagement with the arts offers needed connection, reduces isolation and promotes health and well being. Past participants have witnessed the many ways the Museum’s unique collection offers a bridge to a meaningful and enriching life experience.
