I just felt the need to mark that this week has been a good one for meeting people and having meaty conversations.
On Monday I was in London hanging out all day with Lynne Bruning, Rain Ashford and Jamillah Knowles [Outriders]. I’m not even going to attempt to sum up the topics covered, suffice to say that there were many and they were heartfelt. And there was a lot of cake. Rain took loads of photos, of which the above is one of the few that didn’t feature cake.
To be honest, some of the ones I took featuring cake didn’t technically feature as much cake as they could have done…
Tuesday featured a Pecha Kucha
Night afternoon Coventry event – always good – and a meeting that involved much passionate talk about making stuff and making stuff happen.
Wednesday I got to chat to some knitters as I started a new residency at The Public (you’ll be hearing more about that later…)
And yesterday I was back in London for a Creative Lab at King’s College London helping to develop projects and new digital prototypes for cultural organisations. I was in a lovely team with a stimulating blend of familiar names and faces and people I hope to hear from more in the future.
There was no cake.
