Adriane Boag, Program Coordinator, National Gallery of Australia with responsibility for developing and delivering access programs for youth and community groups.

Adriane has a Visual Arts degree with Honours in Painting and Sculpture from Sydney College of the Arts, Sydney Australia. Adriane has over twenty years teaching experience in tertiary and museum visual art education.

Adriane coordinates regular tours for a wide variety of specialised audiences including people living with dementia and is the facilitator of the Art and Alzheimer's' Program at the National Gallery of Australia. In 2009 support from the Department of Health & Ageing made possible the development and delivery of the Art and Alzheimer's Outreach Program. The Outreach Program's aims and objectives support sustainable regionally specific programs in galleries for people living with Dementia. A two day training workshop for arts and health professionals has been developed from the experience gained within the current Art and Alzheimer's Program at the National Gallery.

A focus of her Gallery work with youth is the National Gallery of Australia and National Australia Bank Summer Art Scholarship, an annual week long art immersion program for sixteen year 11 students selected from each state and territory of Australia.
