Are you living with dementia, or do you know someone who is? Why not try IMMA’s Armchair Azure, a free online experience designed for people living with dementia and their families and friends. During Armchair Azure, you will explore a selection of artworks from IMMA’s Collection with a facilitator who has received special training in dementia-inclusive arts programming. This experience is ideal for family members or friends to do together.

To participate you will need a laptop or tablet with a camera to take part. We don’t advise joining on a smart phone as it can be harder to see the image of the artwork we are discussing on a smaller screen.
