Good news, John!
It will be great to hear about the outcome of your meeting with Andy Eagle. As for BR-116's future steps we will certainly keep NTW+community posted at each and every new opportunity.
For now, the videos from the Cardiff event can be accessed here www.br-116.com
Hi BR116ers and other Brazil-oriented people. At the BR116 day, we agreed that we would set up a formal 'follow up meet' between Arts Council Wales, British Council and Wales Arts International to discuss ways to move plans forward. This has now been scheduled for Jan, and I will also attend alongside Andy Eagle from Chapter. We agreed at the day that this follow up wouldn't be an open meet - as it's largely about structural questions - but if any artists have issues you'd like raise, or questions you'd like to ask, just post them here and we'll make sure they get on the agenda. We're also working hard on the online sharing space for artists and that should see the light of day in the first couple of months of next year. If you are in touch with Brazilian artists you'd like to involve in this, let us know and we'll invite them. We'll also be putting the word out in Wales, Brazil and beyond!
BR116 Wales was a wonderfully creative day, bringing together artists, companies, and agencies such as the British Council to talk about the possibilities for Wales-Brazil collaborations. We heard about Transform the British Council initiative to build up UK-Brazil cultural exchange and collaborations over the next four years. We also experienced four artists commissions - all curated by the Anglo-Brazilian company Zecura Ura - created by artists from Cardiff, Rio, Brighton and London all of which explored the spaces, journeys and connections between very different places. The day was led by Jorge Lopes Ramos and Persis Jade Maravala and sparked dozens of ideas, ranging from exchanges, to performances to ways of organising the arts differently. This group is for the participants on the day and for anyone else who wants to join the conversation about Brazil-Wales collaboration.
