I'm working on an exciting new project. It involves a human pyramid. "Standing on the Shoulders of Giants" will require 6 young dancers & we'll show it during Art on the Hill 2018. Below is a copy of my flyer. You might need to click and enlarge it
Following our Emotional Wellbeing Children and Families project last year at Victoria Park Baptist Church, we're happy to be continuing our work with a series of creative dance and music workshops, being pioneered here by enthusiastic Year 4 students.
Did I mention bass guitar? Well, listen...it's there in the mix alongside djembe drum, shruti box and voice.
All might seem a bit quiet of late - but the lower frequencies of gyroscopic are resounding to the sound of my BASS playing. All part of a new project, resting in the assurance of a booming bass-line and the guarantee of more community fun in 2018.
Thoughts And Earworms - our Emotional Wellbeing Families project, with an emphasis on Primary-school-aged children "Breathless. With a thought. Ideas. Balloons, bubbles, bursting. Beginnings". This is Theresa's 'thought poem'. Others of us have been sharing our 'thought songs' or general earworms...songs that won't go away. The words have particular significance for Theresa and I like them. So they have become the lynchpin of our Emotional Wellbeing Project (see previous post) involving *live music, dance, artwork* and lots of balloons and bubbles. Our Happy Happenings and serious thoughts are all taking place at Victoria Park Baptist Church, Bristol.
Thoughts and Earworms - our Bristol City Council funded Emotional Wellbeing project for children and families - is going well. On Sunday we held a visual arts-based workshop called 'Thought Bubbles'. People of various ages had a great time making a paint and washing-up liquid mixture, which then translated into wonderful bubble paintings.
We've created work that'll go on the walls in time for our presentation of *live music and dance*, which we look forward to showing on Sunday 9th July.
BUBBLE ART can be BEAUTIFUL
Coming soon to the EWF Children & Families 'Thoughts and Earworms' project : 'Thought Paintings', a visual arts workshop using acrylics and oils. For example: the bird in the picture BELOW feels lonely. There's an open padlock, made of gold, with a rusty chain which, to the outside eye, might represent freedom. But sometimes feelings are so strong, we cannot escape them. We understand how feelings are not always bright and happy. This project - and the things we are discussing - has been endorsed by the organisations below:
