Reconnect & Resonate
Hi! I hope you have kept well and found some light in amongst all of this. Apologies, too – I am artist-in-residence for Ironworks, (creating with residents in and around Sturton Town – is that actually a known name now? – and beyond) – and haven’t been in touch as much as I should have recently. It has taken a while to figure out how to be an artist with you from a distance, to be honest. Zoom is ok – but I am missing the magic of unexpected creative moments and the quieter conversations that happen off to the side.
I have been collaborating with artists (including local artist Filipa Pereira-Stubbs) to develop #creativecare activities for Cambridge Curiosity and Imagination. Visit their website (cambridgecandi.org.uk) to invite more creativity and nature in your home, Art and nature have certainly helped hold me up in this period. What has resonated with you? What have you reconnected to?
I have been pondering this theme, my role within the community, and how we can stimulate our imaginations to help us envisage a ‘new normal’.
I’m planning a ‘Reconnect and Resonate’ exhibition at The Museum of Cambridge in December as a creative record of your stories – of what and who we have reconnected to during lockdown, what has resonated with us, and how can this help us shape the future ‘new normal’ together… I will be sharing activities, conversations and ideas here – please join me, I’d love to hear from you!
