What is the Art Gallery Tour?
This one hour long Art Gallery Tour will take registered participants on a guided walk through the Art Gallery of Ontario with the lens of health and well-being to support self-management and healthy living. The gallery visit will journey into mindfulness and creative spaces that we hope will help connect participants with the experiences of their peers as well as artists' creations while living with chronic conditions.
Peer Ambassadors leading the tour have been trained by the Art Gallery of Ontario and South Riverdale Community Health Centre. These individuals have experience living with or supporting others with chronic health conditions.
Who can attend?
Anyone living with or giving care to someone with a chronic health condition that has registered for the program.
There will be only 5 people per group.
What does it cost to attend?
There is no fee. AGO and SRCHC have partnered to offer this program at no cost. Registered participants will receive instructions on accessing ticket as well as travel support.
Who developed the program?
The Art Gallery of Ontario and the South Riverdale Community Health Centre co-designed this program and have established a partnership to offer free mindfulness gallery visits led by a trained Peer Ambassador.
As a program, we have curated an experience from a lens of chronic disease management that is grounded in reflection in which the gallery visits serves as an opportunity for people living with long term health condition to exercise mindfulness while interacting with the artwork as well as others in a fun and creative manner.
Registration is mandatory.
