About this Event
Join Connect the Dots for a relaxed conversation drawing connections between the ideas and themes in the outdoor sculptures on display. This tour will focus on the sculptures in closest proximity to the Visitor Centre.
Make Moments programmes are aimed at older people, people living with dementia, and their families. This tour is highly recommended for visitors who enjoy a gentle pace. These works that are in close proximity to each other allowing for a relaxing morning. Stools will be provided so that we can comfortably chat for a time at each of the artworks.
The tour itself runs for an hour, and then you have the option to join us in the cafe for a morning coffee to continue sharing ideas or just chatting about the weather. We will have reserved a table.
Everything is provided, including a morning tea of a hot drink and home baking. No experience of art or artmaking required. Our sessions are open ended, experimental and accessible.
How fit do I need to be?
The sculptures are scattered throughout the gardens, and Connect the Dots have designed our tours to accommodate the needs of individuals with limited mobility. This tour has the least amount of travel distance between sculptures.
What do I need to wear?
Please wear comfortable shoes and a hat, and you may like to bring an umbrella to shield you from the sun. Please apply complimentary sunscreen before the tour - you can find this at the front desk when you arrive.

Where will we meet?
The tours begin just outside the Visitor Centre, on the park side, and Connect the Dots will have two fox terriers with them to help you identify them!
