As a member of Harbinger Consultants, Linda Carroli is used to facilitating large scale projects. As a result of a personal experience she has been inspired to create, with the help of several local artists, a tactile artwork for a local hospital’s dementia unit. Such artworks can provide helpful cognitive and sensory stimulation for patients.
Invited by QSWFA member Nat Billing, who is one of the participating artists, Linda has kindly agreed to speak at our first Saturday meeting on the inspiration and experience of the project. Join us on Saturday, Feb 6, at 10:30am for what will be a fascinating talk.
