Aren’t we clever!

maa logoJoin us for our first session at the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology when we will have private access to the Museum to explore a fascinating collection of works by humans around the world that illustrate our universal ingenuity in design and use of resources.

We will gather in the Museum for a short talk: Aren’t we clever! led by Sarah-Jane Harknett, the Museum’s Outreach Officer, followed by a opportunity to handle related art objects that you wouldn’t want to miss.  We will also be joined by a Fitzwilliam Education Artist who will offer us the opportunity to make our own object drawing from the earlier talk.

This is part of the Portals to the World museum programme – with offerings specially designed to support people living with dementia: both the person with memory challenges and his or her care partner.  This is a small group meeting supported by trained volunteers and staff members to focus on participant abilities and offer care partners a shared repose.  Alumni from previous courses at the Fitzwilliam Museum are welcome.

Monday, 22 April 2013
