          Museums are going in many new directions as they identify and adopt new ways of public involvement. New programs for people with disabilities and opportunities for both active elders and those with dementia are only a few of them. The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts includes the opportunity for an organization to propose a “made to measure” project to suit its needs.  It has also developed an art therapy initiative that other institutions might examine and adapt for their own needs.

I have shared information before about this wonderful video and I encourage you to get it and use it with others interested in the arts in healthcare.
