Time Flies
with Richard Broderick

We have recently started our Time Flies project, which is a two-year project supported by Lloyds Bank Foundation.

This project will involve sculptor Richard Broderick and photographer Sharon Bailey working with our Elders to produce a sculpture that celebrates their lives.  Everyone has a collection of stuff. Bits and pieces; lost in the backs of drawers. Letters postcards, photos, perhaps a child’s first shoes, old keys; all things, which hold memories and are of personal significance. We aim to develop a process whereby the personal histories of the participants are recorded into Scrapbooks. The lives will then form the materials for an installation in The Grange as the lifetimes fly off the pages and become part of a sculpture spreading across the roof space of the centre.

This life celebration will continue in year two. Kite maker Pauline Taylor will prompt and gather memories from the elders. They will then explore significant times or events in their lives and help them create and fly unique individual kites celebrating these people and times.
