Horniman ideas

From Hilary Ramsden

so where exactly do our replies to posts appear?? I’ve commented/replied to 2 posts but I can’t see them, so wondering if anyone else can see them??

here is a reply to Lou’s post (and Sarah’s subsequent post) about the Horniman funding thing: a great idea, but as you say seat of the pants deadline…also the amount of ££ would probably not be enough to bring our friends back as well as working to create something….unless there would be dosh from a Brazilian fund to pay for flights/accomodation etc. I am up for creating something for the last 2 dates in August for a family thing….something site-specific in the gardens…will have a brief think…to see if it’s worth it….

Horniman application… 1 week to deadline?

From Sarah-Jane Mason

I’ve had a brief look at the paperwork and essentially they are looking for work that celebrates the exchange between Brazil and the UK. This is perfect for us. But the deadline is tight and I can’t do this alone – it needs people both sides of the ocean on board and able to commit time to both the writing of the application and then the making of the work etc.

So if you are interested in collaborating on this application and have some time this week to help with the application then can you reply to this with any ideas you have and what you can do to help? I’d we can work quickly to get this together it’d be an amazing start to our potential collective going forwards.


Calling all Potency & Potential network artists! want to attend the February international residential encounter?

Dear all,

On this eve of the New Year, we’re sending out a call for those interested in attending the February Encounter (residential), together with a group of those who attended the Sao Paulo  encuentro/imersao. We have a few more members than we have places, and so we are asking for expressions of interest, based around the call below, to make sure people who are keen can put themselves forward. (It may be that everybody who wants to come can come, but we need to ensure everyone has a fair chance):

Residential Discussion Call: ‘How do artists and activists foster spaces that can catalyse change/action, when working creatively with groups? And what are the qualities of such spaces?

  1. What draws you to this project residential, what is your interest in participating?
  2. What elements within your work/perspective/experience excite you in relation to our discussion theme above, which we will be exploring together at the residential?

Please respond in whatever way you choose (no more than 1 page total. Less would be better) to help us ensure we have the best mix and balance in this group.
PS you will need to participate in the full residential, at Northern College, near Barnsley, South Yorkshire,  12:00 on 17th February to 15:00 on 19th February. Costs and fees for the residential are covered by the project. We will have interpreters with us, so please don’t feel outfaced by the different languages that may be in use.

Looking forward to seeing your responses!!

by midnight on Sunday 10th January!!

We’ll be in touch shortly after that, to finalize the participant list.

Best of luck, best wishes, and
Happy New Year!!!!

Anni, Hilary and Victoria
