Dwell Time launch the second edition of their award winning art publication reflecting on mental wellbeing.

Dwell time: The time a train spends at a scheduled stop without moving. Typically, this time is spent boarding or alighting passengers, but it may also be spent waiting for traffic ahead to clear, or idling time in order to get back on schedule.

Dwell Time Issue 2 Online Launch: Wednesday 15 July 2020

Covid-19 has put the world on hold and Dwell Time postponed their Issue 2 launches in March as the UK went into lockdown. In place of the live events scheduled in March, an online launch in July will feature their original film programme focussing on mental wellbeing.

The online launch programme features selected films by Lucy Barker & Ben NCM, Louis Benoit, Community Rail Cumbria, Robert C Clarke, Ralph Dartford, Leo Fernandez-Arias, Katie Gornall, Finn Harvor, Sophie Hoyle, Janet Lees, Maciej Piątek, Carolyn Richardson, Libby Scarlett.

Dwell Time’s YouTube Channel will feature the film programme from 12noon on Wednesday 15 July 2020. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9-326tuMzHL8qzJUQbHptA Discussions about the films are welcomed on the Dwell Time facebook and twitter pages from 12noon, welcoming feedback and comments about the films and the issues they raise plus links to related artworks and support. https://www.facebook.com/dwelltimepress/

Dwell Time Issue 2 will be available to order by post and a pdf download available from the Dwell Time website. The print publication and pdf are free with only postage costs applicable. https://dwelltimepress.wordpress.com/issue2/

When it is safe to open, Issue 2 will also be available from Dwell Time Central in Huddersfield with wider distribution when it’s possible. Dwell Time’s open call for responses to Covid19 continues also. https://dwelltimepress.wordpress.com/c19-edition/

Rowena Chantler, Community Rail Officer for Penistone Line Partnership commented: “We all experience pressures to our mental health at some point in our lives. Currently far too many people fear being judged or treated differently which stops them talking or reaching out for help. This project really promotes the discussion of mental health and we hope it will encourage people to start talking and reach out for help if it is needed.”

We have had to postpone our launch events in light of the COVID-19 pandemic but we are opening another call for a special COVID-19 edition and we will also be offering postal delivery of Issue 2 in the near future.

 

Dwell Time Special COVID-19 Edition

Open call for art, writing and poetry reflecting on mental wellbeing in the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dwell time: The time a train spends at a scheduled stop without moving. Typically, this time is spent boarding or alighting passengers, but it may also be spent waiting for traffic ahead to clear, or idling time in order to get back on schedule.

In these are unprecedented and worrying times, our mental wellbeing and creativity is paramount. Whilst we are confined with limited social interaction, we want to offer online space to explore our responses to the pandemic and social isolation. It’s OK to not be OK and anyone who has any reflections about this is welcome to send them for inclusion on our website https://dwelltimepress.wordpress.com/

Email: [email protected] with your images and/or text in editable format. Please include what name/pseudonym you wish to use or whether you would like your contribution to be anonymous. If you would like a link to your website or blog please also include this.

We did a full day of filming today at Huddersfield Railways Station and our new space Dwell Time Central. CrossCountry are making a short film about Dwell Time the videographer was over to shoot various sections. Artists Amelia Baron and Debbie Nicholson Wood joined us along with one of our workshop participants who wants to remain anonymous and spoke about their work with Dwell Time. Everyone was great and got through the nerves of being on film (I was probably the most nervous!) Huge thanks to everyone involved.
