In March 2017, ARTzheimer's opened the doors to it's sixth exhibition titled 'Light and Shade' at The Civic Theatre in Tallaght. The exhibition is currently on longterm display at the theatre and we would like to publicly thank theatre director, Michael Barker-Caven for hosting this ongoing show. The exhibition has been designed and curated to evoke responses from the public. Their personal feedback will help us start honest and brave conversations about Alzheimer's.
ARTzheimer's was recently featured in the May edition of InTallaght magazine. The link to this article can be found here: http://www.intallaght.ie/artzheimers/

In November 2014, ARTzheimer's second exhibition took place in the stunning location of Aras Chronain House in Clondalkin Village. In attendance on the opening night were many of the boys and girls from the two local primary schools who had taken part in ARTzheimer's Schools Pilot Program. Along with their teachers, principles and family members, the opening nights event was a truly memorable one for all involved.
