Pause is an opportunity to engage with art, and your own feelings and thoughts in a supported environment; share experiences with like-minded people; reflect on your own identity your caring role; and enjoy ‘in-the-moment’ pleasure. You’ll also discover how mindful activities can support self-care and learn skills and strategies that can be transferred to the care environment.

The program is a partnership between the Art Gallery, Palliative Care NSW, the University of New South Wales and the University of Technology Sydney.

The experience is facilitated by artist and researcher Dr Gail Kenning and Danielle Gullotta, senior access programs producer at the Art Gallery of New South Wales.

So, take some time out and come on a mindful journey focused on a curated selection of artworks from the collection. We invite you to engage in a guided experience of art and conversation using slow-looking techniques to observe, explore, and discuss your insights on art and life.

This program has been developed specifically for those who are supporting a person receiving palliative care, whether in a professional, volunteer or informal capacity. You will be asked how you identify yourself in your caring role, you do not have to answer, but it will help us to best facilitate a shared empathic experience.
