Developed in collaboration with the Arte Musica Foundation, this programme is an original way to explore the themes in the Museum’s exhibitions through music.
Every two months, people aged 65 and over can enjoy free access to our encyclopaedic collections as well as a multidisciplinary activity designed especially for them. Developed in collaboration with Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, this programme sheds light on the role of movement in art and explores the Museum’s works while introducing participants to dance.
Once every two months, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts invites people aged 65 and over to enjoy a day of art and yoga designed especially for them, in addition to free access to its encyclopaedic collections. Yoga helps us to get in touch with our inner selves and replenish our inner light. Combined with art, it serves the Museum’s mission to cultivate well-being.
In a convivial atmosphere, participants will occupy the Museum, taking part in a gentle yoga practice, discussing a work in the collection and enjoying this uniquely creative exploration. A stimulating experience that will open your horizons, body and soul!
