Last night we had our first ‘make and do’ party at the Edge. About 20 artists, musicians, performers and others met and ‘jammed’ the night away. Highlights included John McQueens portraits of people sitting in half of a boat we have in the studio at the moment (don’t ask), with a massive projection screen showing photographic backdrops – we’ll post some of the results in a couple of days, Sandra improvising screwed up country songs with the musicians, including live slide guitar and Rob Hewitt the artist’s stencilling workshops. A fantastic night was had by all and established ‘Make and Do’ as a regular feature from now on at the Edge, get in touch for details of how to get involved.
Don’t forget that next Saturday night, December 6th, is the next ‘Outersight’ psynema night, ‘Rise of the Robots’ science fiction spectacular featuring the usual mix of bizarre shorts, with a feature film, some live theremin if we’re lucky and futuristic cocktails to sip.
‘Heard and Not Seen’ has just finished the first exhibition outing at the Mailbox. A wonderful response, with over a thousand vistors to the show, and a great series of group discussions with a huge range of people. The project continues over at the website, before a series of further exhibitions next year, at community venues, galleries and museums. Keep checking in at the website, leave your comments, stories or questions and help us continue to develop this important project, and the dialogue it creates.
