In partnership with the Agency for Integrated Care (AIC), the Peranakan Museum ran two cycles of this six-week pilot programme to engage 30 residents and five staff members from Ling Kwang Home for Senior Citizens. The residents and staff members were involved in facilitated conversations inspired by artefacts in the Peranakan Museum and participated in various art-making activities while sharing their personal stories with each other. The pilot programme had provided many learning points that provide a guide for future designing of programmes for seniors visiting the museums and heritage institutions.
