Our new project ‘Panorama’ was due to start today at The Booth Centre, Manchester, with an afternoon trip to The People’s History Museum. Unfortunately the ‘Beast from the East,’ has put a delay to that, Matt and I stranded in snowy Derbyshire.
Panorama, is a project work with people with lived experience of homelessness. Combining visual art, songwriting and performance to create scrolling artworks (Moving Panoramas). Together with songwriter Matt Hill (The Quiet Loner) we will find creative ways to embed history & creative writing into artwork and art & music into history, allowing participants to inhabit another skin and leave homelessness at the door. The resulting work, including a filmed live performance to the public, will be exhibited and archived to create a lasting legacy. Matt and I are looking forward to the starting the project next week. Our best wishes to everyone rough sleeping in these freezing temperatures.
