My next stop is Bristol for a short residency at Saffron Care Home with Willis Newson and Brunel Care where I will spend time talking to residents and staff about 'home'. Design work will be developed leading to commissioned work within the new care home.
"How does dementia affect an understanding of ‘home’ and ‘homely’ for people across different cultures and backgrounds, including those who may have emigrated to Britain in their youth? This is the central question being addressed through an artist residency by Deirdre Nelson within a Bristol care home. She is exploring the concept of ‘home’ within the differing cultural backgrounds and rich life stories of residents and staff at a Brunelcare Care Home for people living with dementia."
