Our Aberdeen


Our Aberdeen is a programme of dementia and cognitive friendly events which bring people together to share their stories and feel part of a community. They are relaxed sessions with friendly staff who enjoy a good chat while showing you artworks and objects from the AAGM collections.  

These are dementia friendly but not dementia exclusive events and anyone over the age of 16 is welcome.  Anyone is welcome to bring along photographs and music suggestions to share with the group. 

No need to book a space, just turn up and join in!
