The event was promoting the work of the local community rail partnerships and we had some copies of Dwell Time to give out and talk to people about. We trialled the new microphones and did some video interviews with Lenny and Rowena. Vanessa is editing those and we’ll upload them soon to a new Vimeo and/or Youtube channel.
On Friday we received the amazing news that our application for a YVAN Microgrant was a success! This grant will be used to put on an exhibition in Huddersfield over the summer of the work produced during our Issue 1 launch and will also double up as our laucnh of Issue 2 open call. Details to follow.
Yesterday we went to South Square’s first Wellbeing Weekend with some Dwell Time copies and spent the day audio interviewing practitioners and visitors about mental wellbeing. The event was great with a steady flow of people and a really relaxed and happy vibe. We met loads of lovely people, and had some great conversations. We also enjoyed an excellent Indian head massage from Judy Foody, learned how to make lip blam and had coffee and cake in between the interviews. We’ll upload these interviews to our new channel asap too and we plan to transcribe some for Issue 2 as well.
