Art and Ageing Fellowship
The Irish Museum of Modern Art wish to appoint a Fellow to work with our Art and Ageing Programme.
In the past year IMMA has worked within the institution to develop both awareness and skills with its staff in relation to welcoming and facilitating people living with dementia and their families/carers to the museum. The purpose of the Fellowship is to create the potential for more interventions for people living with dementia and embed practice in our programmes through adopting an action research model which will allow for testing out new ways to develop the Azure model, identify evaluation methodologies that are sensitive to the ‘social model ‘ of engagement that we are adopting and to work in partnership with our medical colleagues in the MISA institute and Trinity College to both grow the number of participants in our programmes and to reflect on its effectiveness and to disseminate the learning through our national and international networks.
