A celebratory event organised for the official launch of “A Pattern for Progress”, commissioned for the new Jeffrey Cheah Biomedical Centre (Stem Cell Institute) public space.
The project led by artist Harold Offeh and his Cambridge Betterment Society was created through a two-way dialogue between people living with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), their carers, and scientists researching the neurological condition, with support from the Cambridge and District branch of the MS Society.
Offeh invited the group to work together to share their experiences or research in the process of designing and creating a ceramic tile. Guided through a series of workshops by ceramicist, Kate Welton, they produced individually designed and glazed tiles that reflect their different experiences of the MS condition. The finished tiles provide a background ‘wallpaper’, to the accompanying film capturing their stories.
