FIVE YEARS OF THIS BLOG!
My blog has served me more as an aide memoire or diary than an interactive blog inviting comment and discussion. Over the last year I've explored the option of having a website or self-publishing some of the essays I've written, particularly those composed during Lockdown. Unfortunately the cost of living blows these options out of the water.
Firstly technical help is imminent in tidying up this blog so titles of posts are evident on the home page. Such as my more detailed CV accessible in the April 2023 post below.
Secondly help at changing the domain name. I have done so much work on later life academically, in my writing (Age Queer) and through performance (Artivist in a Box). I have so many other directions I want to go in.
The last year has seen me:-
In two supporting artist roles in local filming via Phoenix Casting of the blink and you'll miss me kind, Also playing a dying woman in a University of Bristol student film, Evenescent Nexus, for which the highly professional young film makers raised the money to pay the cast.
Spending much time on immensely rewarding trustee duties for Travelling Light Theatre.
Being an Open Mic impresario (?) for fundraisers at Cafe 5 (Bristol Refugee Rights) and at the Dark Horse (Travelling Light's Big Give Challenge).
Enjoying improv workshops at the amazing Wardrobe Theatre
Seeing great theatre here in Bristol.
And finally researching and writing my script for The Benefit. The first draft has been completed and excerpts have been performed at the above Open Mic events.
