From the Zoom Chat...
the UCL Covid19 social study has shown that engaging in creativity has been the most protective factor for mental health and wellbeing during this crisis
And that engagement has been across the social demographic including people who are experiencing severe hardship and with long term mental illness. ...Jayne Howard of Arts Well
if one person fails we all fail is such a profound idea. it is how our ecosystems work in nature. the cultural mycelium of the human world echoing nature.
so inspiring… Art, Design, Science, Community, all coming together in a transformative culture. completely brilliant. From Deborah Curtis

Deborah Curtis - Little House of Fairy tales
This is now a moment of Tipping Point.. we need to ensure that critical thinking, science, technology and politics are in joined up thinking with the arts. Culture is everything about how we cloth ourselves, feed ourselves, warm ourselves, relate to each other. we need to join the dots. not be separate.
There are so many brilliant organisations who have been working for decades. We need to make sure their voices are also heard. if we all work together we can create extraordinary transformation.
Brilliant, thank you - Jayne Howard & Léa Guzzo - Cornwall Council - Senior Culture and CI Officer

The Covid19 Social Study shows that participating in creative activity has been the best protector of mental health and wellbeing over the pandemic

We are working toward our new 5 years cultural strategy for Cornwall: Creative Manifesto. Would be great to see all this embedded in this new strategy> Thanks the presentation.
Thanks very much for good info - I think that it is really only creativity which will get us through things... so true that we have to look at what is near us. - Chair of Newlyn Society of Artists

Thanks for organising a really interesting session – great to hear the other speakers.
Thanks so much again – and great to ‘meet’ you all!
Thank you, Jo! And thank you everyone!
Green theme week
Art has always involved Activism
Shallal has always wanted to show a better way for us to be together and now we can't keep silence about our systems ( which need to change now) and the planet which is our home. (People who are vulnerable are often the worst and first affected.)
This is a rather random selection which doesn't have Einaudi's Elegy for the Arctic, which is on an older playlist.
I've enjoyed listening to some great 'oldies' and finding the new work at the end.
Culture Declares Emergency
August 28th sees a Culture Declares Emergency banner drop - there will be one on our door at Shallal Studio Krowji.
Everyone is invited to join in with write/create - Letters to Power
In Shallal -join in with Green Art and next week its Doughnuts and Circles.
Doughnut Economics, Circular economies...and anyone with Easy Read copy for any of these please get in touch.
JoL's suggestion of Greensleeves...
