Look, Imagine & Move at the Fitzwilliam Museum

Back to Activities

Paintings in the Fitzwilliam Museum's collection will inspire conversation, music and movement across this series of courses, designed to uplift and connect - all in the tranquil setting of the Museum.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • trying something new can make you feel uplifted and inspired;
  • it emphasises imagination, movement and conversation which offers opportunities for wellbeing and connection;
  • it gives you time and space for yourself.

“It was a great experience with unexpected long-term benefits for me. I have learned some invaluable beneficial and new techniques over the past weeks I’ve already applied them into my day-to-day life.”

What to expect

Taking part in a Look, Imagine & Move course is an opportunity to discover the nourishing benefits of taking the time in a peaceful environment to explore works of art in the Fitzwilliam Museum’s  collection.

Using a closed gallery exclusively for the group’s use, session leaders use presence and relaxation to help the group step into art through music, movement and conversation.

Inspiring and energising, this is a safe and supportive group which will explore and grow together through dance and expression.

You can get a feel for what the courses will involve by watching the video above. There are more videos on the Fitzwilliam Museum’s YouTube page
