Limina Collective

Limina Collective brings art and audiences together through mindful engagement

Limina Collective is a small, passionate team of mindfulness and arts experts. We share an enthusiasm for the interplay between mindfulness and art and the possibilities for positive impact on museum experience and future visitors.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, the Limina team is developing ways to expand our online offerings and adapt our museum-based work to take social distancing into account. We are keeping a close eye on developments in the museum world and look forward to stepping back into it once it is considered safe to do so. Meanwhile, we are planning online workshops to focus on individual artworks from collections we love. Subscribe to our mailing list at the bottom of this page to find out more.

Why mindfulness and art?

Mindfulness unlocks the ability to pay attention to the present moment, with purpose and curiosity, without judgment, and tuned in with all the senses. Looking at art offers a valuable opportunity to practise mindfulness and make time for the wonder and richness of the visual world, as seen through the eyes of an artist. Art galleries and museums are restful spaces within the city, available for quiet contemplation, while mindfulness approaches enhance the experience, appreciation and understanding of art.
