Totally fantastic day yesterday

8 Nov 2009 jane

TOTALLY EPIC DAY yesterday with African Writers Abroad, Virtual Migrants, and Remember Saro-Wiwa events. I was completely inspired by the energy flowing around all day – from the workshops in the Meeting Room to performances in Galleries 3 and 4. The place was buzzing. I had been having conniptions earlier in the week about getting audiences for the workshops and performances, BUT we had really good turnout, great vibe, and fantastic discussion. Good laugh til late on boat afterwards. Never has the Heloise Bay had so many poets on it at once.

There was also a “Mash-up” going on – family day organised by Arnolfini, on climate change and protest. Trapese’s space in Gallery 2 was filled with kids all making banners. Great stuff…
