Connecting Generations: Legacy through art and music at the Walker Art Gallery

Connecting Generations: Legacy through art and music at the Walker Art Gallery

Thursday 29th September 2016

Commercial law firm Brabners and financial advisers, the Financial Planning Corporation (FPC) recently joined forces to deliver the fourth in a series of events to raise awareness of National Museum Liverpool’s House of Memories project, hosted at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool.

The evening featured a review and contemporary analysis of 17th century art and music, as well as an exclusive trio sonata performance by Alberto Sanna, musicologist, violinist and lecturer at Liverpool Hope University along with two of his students, Laurence Cocchiara, (violin) and Marco Mascia (cello) performing movements by Arcangelo Corelli.

Guests were also provided with the opportunity to have a private guided tour of the Walker Art Gallery highlighting paintings from the Walker’s collection which reflect the social and political events of the 17th century.

Mark Feeny, Partner at Brabners and Bernice Blundell from the Financial Planning Corporation opened the evening sharing their expert views and anecdotes about some of the legal and financial dilemmas that affect families, and provided a useful insight into the challenges that can affect different generations.

Carol Rogers MBE, Executive Director of the House of Memories closed the evening with a talk about the progress that is being made with the House of Memories project, which seeks to raise awareness of dementia and provides help through a range of practical memory resources and activities.

House of Memories targets carers, health and social care providers and helps them to deliver a positive quality of life experience for people living with dementia. The training programme provides participants with information about dementia as well as skills and resources for practical memory activities. The programme recognises that museums across the UK are expert at recording and caring for people’s memories - whether they are thousands of years old or within ‘living memory’ – and demonstrates how a museum can provide the health and social care sector with practical skills and knowledge to facilitate access to untapped cultural resources within their local area.
