SPARK! is a program for caregivers and loved ones living with memory loss. The Trout Museum of Art, History Museum at the Castle, and The Building for Kids Children's Museum are pleased to be among the Wisconsin museums awarded funding by Bader Philanthropies and the Community Foundation to create programming where participants engage in lively discussions, art making, and multi-sensory activities.
Each one hour program is led by a specially trained museum educator who will engage participants in interactive exhibit experiences. Join us after the program for coffee and conversation led by volunteers who give participants and caregivers the opportunity to support and socialize.
For questions or to register: Contact Hannah Bain at The Trout Museum of Art at 920-733-4089 ex. 1004 or email. Registration is required at least one week prior to your selected program(s). Space is limited.
All events are free and open to the public thanks to the generous support of Bader Philanthropies and the Community Foundation.
The Spark! Alliance is a group of 15 museums across Wisconsin and Minnesota working together to serve individuals with memory loss and their caregivers. The Alliance shares training and scheduling information to act as a resource for the families we serve and other cultural organizations that wish to open themselves to older adults regardless of disability.
