Walkie-talkie

A big thank you to everyone who came down to Chelsea Theatre on Saturday for the Walkie-talkie mobile symposium. Nearly fifty people turned up to to take ideas for a walk and were rewarded with a beautiful summer’s day in which to ‘get outside’. It was really heartening for all of us to meet and see the committment to the network, with people coming from all over the UK; the award for furthest distance travelled goes to Dee Heddon (Glasgow!) We’re working on procuring enough space on the website (www.walkingartistsnetwork.org) to put up the array of documentation created over the day – much of which is still in our cameras, MP3 recorders, etc.

Looking forward to seeing some ‘walkie-talkie’ inspired posts and discussion – both on this site and the JISCmail.

WAN and Sideways Festival

After Andrew Stuck posted the Sideways Festival’s call for projects on the JISCmail, we thought we would get in touch with them on behalf of WAN. I am now please to say that Clare Q and I will be visiting Belgium next week and spending Tuesday with festival organiser Andy Vandevyvere. We are visiting both Trage Wegen (where Andy works) and the Verbeke Foundation (one of the other partners). It seems we are all equally excitied about the prospect of a collaboration between WAN and Sideways, so watch this space!

Looking forward to seeing many of you at Chelsea Theatre on Saturday 30th July – I’ll post more about that later today.
