Value

So this is ME !

A drawing event as part of The Big Draw http://www.thebigdraw.org/the-big-draw in Brecon on Saturday October 22nd yielded 167 images responding to the exclamation This is ME ! an event  organised with support from Brecon Area Dementia Friendly Community.

It was a joyous day and one that gave pause for thought.

One visitor came in and announced that he had ‘only come to offer a donation’, however he was eventually encouraged to make an image. The incident left me considering what it is we actually value especially after creating an event in Bristol  http://www.thebigdraw.org/event/Draw_what_you_value/7175 where users of Aldi in North Street where asked to draw what they valued on the store windows.

and what we value

Drawing offers me a different dimension for communication, a chance to meet others in a different place to that of the world of words, at the Aldi event I found myself realising that  the freedom to draw is one of the most important things in my life, an activity that always teaches me something…………….
