A fanastic night at Ort Gallery for our art surgery. Over 30 people attended for lively discussion about car culture, flamenco guitar, scrap sculpture, anglo-saxon storytelling, eco house design for 21st century, space exploration, family life, the shape of Balsall Heath and Kings Heath of the future, Art InsideOutside, art all over the place, graphics and cartoons...I've missed a few, but as someone put on their comment, there were a lot of very interesting folk there. Also a great exhibition in the gallery, wine and nuts (thanks David), night of music (see video clip) after.
We've added quite a few more names to our mailing list, and was an excellent opportunity to discuss plans for the next six months, with the presentation of our Interim Report. Also sad news that Tony Spencer can no longer be our Drum contact, through long term injury - we all wish him well. However Ian Sergeant will be stepping in, and sure we'll all be getting to know him better soon.
Below are some intersting links to some of people there - please add to the list if you can. Also a few comments and pictures
