Good afternoon all,
I hope that your weekend is going well so far. I am taking a break from preparing James for his return to school. I, like many parents, have mixed feelings about the return, but relieved that home schooling is over. It has been a rather stressful few months!
I have arranged a few things over the next few weeks (via zoom) that I would like to share with you. If you are interested in attending, please do email me.
WHAT CAN I SHARE WITH YOU TODAY?
FREE WORKSHOP – YOU MOVE ME – Tuesday 9th, 3:00pm
Please join us on Tuesday for a wonderful zoom session.
How do we Move? How do we move each other? How are we moved physically and emotionally by the world around us? How do our cultural histories liberate or restrict our mobility? How do our scales of movement change over time? What is the role of labour and economic forces in our movement patterns? How is our body forced to move differently as the physical world changes around us?
In February and early March 2020 Dr. Ellie Cosgrave (researcher at UCL) and Laura Wilson (artist) held open sessions at the NC1 Centre inviting people to consider these questions with us through a series of workshops and walks exploring the London Borough of Camden and how this also relates to your personal histories.
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 and the lockdown in London from mid-March 2020 we were unable to complete all the workshops. However, we would like to invite you to reflect on these questions with us and consider your personal relationship to the city through our enforced stopping of movement over the past year.
QUIZ NIGHT – FRIDAY 12th March, 5:30pm
From Keeley: Hi everyone, I hope you are doing well
National Intergenerational Week, is an online campaign connecting those passionate about intergenerational activity and inspiration across the UK. The campaign is all about celebrating those ideas, moments and opportunities local to us where different age groups come together and intergenerational friendships are made!
Opportunities for generations to connect will become even more important as we emerge from the current pandemic, so John and I would like to invite you to a Quiz next Friday with the After School Club,
Please feel free to join us, the session will be at 5.30 pm and is likely to be an hour long.
All the best, Keeley
ZOOM TALK WITH CHRIS BARLOW; SATURDAY 13th March, 11:00
From Chris Barlow:
Join me on Zoom, as I share with you “Part Two of “Building London” On Saturday 13th March.
I look at how after the devastation of The Great Fire of London in 1666 the resilience of this great city helped to build a thriving metropolis connected through sea power to the rest of the then known world.
London has always been open to new ideas and peoples from around the world and this dynamic outward looking approach is what has forged the amazing place that we live in to this day.
This period also saw the rise of the “Architect” from Christopher Wren to Sir Charles Barry who designed the The Houses of Parliament.
