Sharing and playing

July 22, 2009

Hmm, technical hic up with a video to add to the blog today. What worked yesterday doesn’t seem to want to play today. Never mind some pictures for you to browse… and from tomorrow, we’re having our wonderful geeky friend Stuart Childs http://stuartchilds.com/ help us with documenting via Audioboo, a good few more tweets and all things social media.

Here’s Stuart – looking suitably geeky with laser goggles on head.

Stuart and Richard (Garside) have been using their Friispray with our young people – who have loved the freedom of ‘spraying’ big bold colours and sharing their work. One person can put up their graffiti and this can be saved before the next person adds to the work. Richard and Stuart have developed the software, and hardware since we last saw them at Shift happens in York. We reckon their inquisitiveness, enthusiasm; sense of sharing (their work is developed and is Open Source) certainly shines through and fits so well with our inclusive ethos.

It was quite a joy today wandering round the different rooms and watching young people raising their game, having ambitious plans and being engrossed in achieving them. The sense of shared learning permeated every space, young people learning from artists and each other, artists learning from the young people and those of us supposedly documenting the process of the project just joining in. – We thought we had lost Ray (our Administrator see about us page) only to find him performing a mime in the drama workshop.

The great thing about an inclusive project is the sense of recognition throughout that the wisdom for being human is widely distributed. We are all learning and sharing our creative journey together.

Can’t wait for tomorrow…
