The Leeds based artist Paul Digby will be leading this creative project of mosaic

workshops with people living with dementia, their carer’s and families.

Initially a design will be made by people living with dementia and attending Leeds

Adult Social Care-Dementia Peer Support Service. This design will be transferred

on to a series of ten 4/4 ft panels, people living with dementia and who attend ten

Dementia Cafes across Leeds and a Peer Support group will complete the mosaic

panels in sessions with Paul.

The initial design will respond to the Leeds Museums Collection and address the

question: What does Leeds mean to you?

The individual panels will then connect and form one large and colourful mosaic,

this will be on exhibition in Leeds City Museum later in the year (Broderick Hall,

Map of Leeds).

Writing about my art work.

I have been not sleeping thinking about what to write about my work. I am not averse to saying stuff like my practice’s context is about the manifestation of materials that contrasts with an arrangement of knowledge. Or that my practice is a balance between an academic aesthetic context and a commercial viability or a sustainable model of enterprise. 

I have stood with groups of people and read text written in galleries by curators of gallerists and after a while and lots of discussion it begins to make sense but no matter what I write at the moment, it isn’t enough. 

What I am interested in is people’s response to my work. What do people think about what I do? Who is looking at my work and how does it make them feel? 

I can write about the drawings, paintings  and sculptures I have made, as I have done with some satisfaction!,  about the materials I use, the process I undertook and references. However I think some people expect more and to be honest I don’t feel that there is any more than this. 

After years of reading subjective arts texts I began to read more popular science books because they seem closer to a kind of truth and I still feel this way. 

So my conclusion is visit galleries and look at art, and talk about it with other people, preferably friends!
