The Sanctuary Space was the result of a participatory Arts Council of NI Award, enabling the creation of positive mirrored words for the old Victorian walled garden at Glenbank Cross Community Garden. The garden has been transformed over the past few years by local volunteers, mainly older residents, who have created their own sanctuary space. Many of the volunteers have their own mental health and wellbeing issues and with the help of a local health trust support worker they have addressed many of these issues through gardening and the arts and creativity programme I delivered for them. Using positive words and mirrored glass as a metaphor for the reflection of the ‘man or woman in the mirror’ the letters were laser cut by local tradesmen and finished by myself and the group. I chose the font Times New Roman to keep with the theme of the old garden and to create a classic timeless feel, in keeping with the tranquil qualities of the Sanctuary Space.
