As part of our global programming, ARTZ  participated in a pilot Museums Partnership Program with the National Gallery of Australia, in Canberra. Under the coordination of Marily Cintra, Health and Arts Research Centre, in Australia, and the New South Wales Alzheimer's Association.

ARTZ staff selected paintings for the tours, tested these with people living with Alzheimer's at home and in care homes, and trained museum educators.  The research model developed to evaluate this program included videotapes of the tours, focused interviews, and linguistic analysis of the discussions–all geared to identify changes in participants and staff.
