In July 2019, The Museums at Oxford University hosted a workshop, “Social Prescriptions” that included testimonials from three participants’ in the Pitt Rivers Museum’s Meet Me at the Museum Program, which supports older people and those living with Dementia to be socially connected, creating opportunities for new conversations and learning together.
These extended comments, directly from participants, contrast with the language of more formal evaluations. Each speaker spoke of how the program had helped re-shape his/her life, and built new relationships, new connections with the museum and its collections, and new appreciation for creative expression as a core aspect of life.
