Debby Besford’s talk went well and we had an interesting lot of questions afterwards. We bought a copy of her book, “The Boudoir of the Burlesque Performer”, for our nascent Project Space library.
It seems strange to be able to finish the talk still with daylight streaming through chinks in the window blackout material and no need for torches outside or the floodlight to stop vistors stumbling in quite the wrong direction. We must ger better window screening though.
One of the unforeseen benefits of the talks is that is has given speakers the chance, if they wish, to practice a new presentation or practice discussing new work infront of a (usually!) freindly audience. I suppose being located in a field lends the space an air of informality that can be relaxing.
Debby has got some postcards printed to publicise the show of her photos we are hosting and also the workshop. I took a nice snap of her modelling one at the talk…..
