First Day...

Hi, I'm Edith and I'm an intern at NTW. (And I feel like I'm introducing myself at an AA meeting right now!)



Just to clear things up, today is not actually my first day. I just thought it sounded better as a a title than '7th Day at 5.40pm'! Also, it's testament to the fact that I haven't had a moment to post on here since my first day...



I started my 4-week internship here last Tuesday. To be honest, I left the offices on that day thinking that I was in for a really… Continue

My Research Trip

I’m in Wales for the week, hoping to pin down an idea. What am I looking for? Not sure. What’s my idea? I don’t know yet. Where am I going? The Brecon Beacons, Snowdonia, Anglesey, the Pembrokeshire coast. What am I doing here? Looking at the light. Recording the weather. Walking. Thinking. Talking. Hoping to find something. Hoping to pin down an idea.



A forecast:



The week will begin in the Brecon Beacons, somewhere high up. There’ll be flat skies, a cold front (very…

Digi Arty Thingy Day

Am spending a day at the 'Do the Arts Speak' Digital seminar at Sadlers Wells in London. I was asked to speak on a panel about how National Theatre Wales is using social networking to develop its community. Some of the usual stuff comes up: 'What about people who just want to watch a show' 'how do we guarantee quality'... Not sure they are very interesting questions, and we quickly move on to discuss what is interesting - and how new things emerge when people collaborate and interact. Someone… Continue

I've been thinking recently...

Over the last few months, I've found it really interesting to unintentionally discover different ethics in other branches of religion. And it's made me review what I think about God. I wrote an essay about who I thought was the greatest Briton; I wrote about Darwin, after much deliberation, and his theory about creation, something I fully believe in. It was mesmerising to see his faith being tested through each new discovery and happening in his life. His take on life itself was very… Continue
