David Clegg

Creator of The Terbus Project talks about his art projects created with people suffering dementia

Since 2000 David Clegg has worked with more than 1000 people with dementia to produce a unique archive of stories, letters, drawings, films and music. David named the Trebus Projects in honour of Edmund Trebus, a Polish war veteran, who filled his house with things the rest of the world had decided were rubbish, convinced that in time a use would be found for them.
In his own way, David himself has now become a hoarder of the fragments and remains of the memories of people who have dementia. Working intensively and over long periods of time with the same people he has built up a fascinating record of lives that would otherwise have been lost to history. In a related project David has worked with musician Tommaso Del Signore to create an album of music and words ‘Songs and Stories from the Centre’.
The book Ancient Mysteries recording 28 life stories is being published with the assistance of the Arts Council of England. In this seminar David will talk about the background to these projects, using narrative, music and film.
