The “Disrupting Dementia” exhibition was shown at the Smith earlier this year. Professor Paul Rodgers of the University of Lancaster returns to give some insights into the project, which started from the belief that the design process should be there primarily to serve the needs of people. The project involved Rodgers visiting 17 different Alzheimer Scotland centres, travelling over 2,000 miles from Kilmarnock in the south to Shetland in the north and Stornoway in the west to Bonnyrigg in the east. At each location, Rodgers co-designed tartans with people living with dementia. In total, Rodgers worked with over 130 people across Scotland helping them to design their individual version of the “Disrupting Dementia” tartan.
