A fantastic opportunity to bring people together. The Sound Project script writing workshop part two!

Last Saturday saw the second part of The Sound Project's script writing workshop. After leaving the first part of the workshop with a story from the community, seven writers returned to the Monkton Swifts Social Club to develop their scripts with the wonderful Patrick Jones to help them. The day began with biscuits! And not the ones you dunk in your tea, but an exercise that got us to think of the type of biscuit we would be and why. Shortbread, Rich Tea and home made were but a few that…

My TEAM Journey

My TEAM Journey

One of the problems (and also the joys) of being a TEAM member is that the concept of TEAM is very hard to 'pitch' or describe to another person. TEAM is a fantastic thing - and as many readers will know I can enthuse at length - but a strangers next question will often be: 'So, what is TEAM?' And then I'm stumped. It is so many different things to so many different and diverse people - and as Chair of TEAM Panel, I feel that it is my job to champion and celebrate… Continue

Why I'll keep harping on about TEAM

It was, give or take a few weeks, three years ago I had my first TEAM experience, attending a Leadership training course. This morning I received a letter welcoming me as a National Theatre Wales Board Member as TEAM Representative. It’s been quite a journey!

My experience of attending that Leadership Training day in early 2014 explains a great deal about what TEAM is about, what it means to me & why I’m proud to have been able to represent TEAM for the last three years.

Incredible the things they see

Where we are in the world. Pilsen.

A place rich with a cultural resistance, walls of art adorn the streets gathered through the years, created by people who stay and those who get pushed to leave. Gentrification.

I never realized the true implications and the seriousness of gentrification until I visited the US.  For Chicagoan it contributes to the sense of uncertainty that so many already have to live by.

Benjamin is explaining to the young people at ATPT about Pilsen…
