AIR event and news

Last night Mary and I went to;

Communicating Climate Change is an interdisciplinary forum for ideation and discussion.
www.air.falmouth.ac.uk/research-projects/air-pressure

The exhibition is well worth a visit, some, thought provoking, humourous, educational exhibits

and Jem Mackay ( Skye's dad, Anne's husband) is overseeing a film
Swarm TV is an interactive website that enables people to make films together. During the AIR:Pressure conference, the challenge is to make a film about climate change in 5 days, and Swarm TV is looking for participation from anyone and everyone who would like to get involved at whatever level.

Very exciting for me as a normal stay at home on a Monday home educating mother of 2 children,1 teenager,( 1 at college ), 1 now adult! to go out and listen, learn, enter into discussions etc, however the reason i can be found leading workshops, becomes evident as in some situations i can be too loud! which i tend to forget as it gets absorbed in my normal work! However there's nothing like your children to remind you. Also i think i always expect to have some level of "fun" with art and immediately enter my childish state, that combined with anything that may remind you of school?!...however i do hope to go out to similar events again and am grateful to have such exciting initiatives on our doorstep.

Today; off to meet lovely Amanda Harris from KEAP www.keap.org.uk this afternoon, haven't had a chance to chat in years, except in passing, creative chat re Sketchbooks, ( this morning i am blogging rather than working to finish a 2nd stage application about them- i am not a natural finisher - thankfully many who work with me are!)

Good to have Rory back doing some design work for us, always a pleasure to collaborate with him.

Off to a home ed writing workshop at Falmouth Art gallery this morning run by lovely Jo Lumber, who is now a founding performer/artist in Shallal 2. Last went to a workshop with her when the children were small in the library and at Truro Museum. We are working with her for Fal River Festival Performance by Shallal 2 at Falmouth Art Gallery, Tuesday 28th May 2pm.

Creative changes to the Studio communicated by Colin last night, exciting news on mobiles!
 and we are urgently seeking ways to help the Studio continue and expand after the summer.....

The morning calls, chickens to let out, teenagers talking to.....
wishing you a good ( warm spring) day!
