Mosaics at Darwen Library Theatre.
This project was working with groups in Darwen.
Firstly at drop in sessions I recorded local people's memories and stories about different areas of Darwen.
Then I worked with Tor View ( Special needs Adults centre), a Young Mum's group and a young homeless group, as well as an army of volunteers to help finish off the work; to create the mosaics.
Some mosaics represent place names in Darwen and others pictorially tell the stories I had collected.
Based on stories about events in different areas of Darwen, and tied together by the watery shapes to symbolise the river.
The overall effect was that of the river Darwen on it's course along the valley, through the town.
This project was done about 6 years ago , and can be seen on the wall outside Darwen Library and the Library Theatre.
This is project I did through Action Factory Community Arts.
