In 2017 the museum became part of the Spark! Alliance. SPARK! is a program designed to stimulate conversations, provide peer support, and inspire creativity through engaging in museum experiences. The Neville joins over 20 other museums in Wisconsin and Minnesota in its commitment to offering monthly programs for people with memory loss and their care partners, free of charge.
To me, the best part about SPARK! is that it isn’t a “one-size-fits-all” approach. Each museum does things their own way. At the Neville, our SPARK! program focuses on a different temporary exhibit each month. Because we have so many different types of exhibits throughout the year, each SPARK! program is unique. Sometimes we’ll do science experiments, sometimes create works of art, and sometimes focus on storytelling. Regardless of the activities, every month our goal is to create a supportive environment where families and friends can simply enjoy being together, and experience something new and different.
