Discovering David Nash through the Armchair Gallery

Care home residents at Sycamore House have been taking part in an eight week Armchair Gallery project facilitated by artist Sam Metz.

Sam is a visual artist and has taken participants on an oral, visual and sensory tour throughout her sessions, using visual arts, poetry, music and tactile objects to explore. For residents living with dementia, the sensory aspects of the workshops have allowed full access and engagement with the project. This brief film gives you an insight into the methods and approaches used in facilitating the sessions.
