THE ARCHES CENTRE BELFAST
The bold, colourful Arches Centre is a beacon of health and regeneration for its east Belfast neighbourhood. It is one of three new Community Treatment and Care Centres designed to provide a range of health and social care services under one roof.
Outside the Arches Centre in Belfast Michael Disley’s highly visible and cheerful Yoga Lesson sculpture is made of concrete and depicts a child in a flower-print dress performing a hand stand.
In the past 25 years Michael over a hundred public works all across the UK and Ireland. In 1993 he went to Africa to live and work with the Shona carvers in Zimbabwe. More recently he travelled extensively to Japan, China, and India to discover new materials, techniques and cultures.
