Like a BOX of oranges
So sorry I haven't been in touch for a while, I've been all hands on deck with a different project that's taking all my time. I'm doing a residency in my local boxing club in Deptford, London. Just like my residency at Headway, I've been immersing myself within the community and interviewing members, and now I'm producing a comic about them with an emphasis on female recreational boxing and the club's 'Jab Don't Stab' motto.
With an exhibition of the work and a launch of the comic coming up in August, this project has had a faster turnaround. If anyone would like to come and see the work, it will be up on the walls in Deptford Does Art from 16th - 31st August. There will be a launch and a panel discussion on two seperate occasions so please feel free to contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to attend either of them.
Then back to Orange - I miss it! My news is that I have had a very good meeting with Arts Council England and will be making my fourth - yes FOURTH - application to fund my time in producing the work for this project. Strewth.
So given my lack of juicy update, I shall leave you with a quote from Tony, one of the members at Headway, that is relevent every day.
Have fun, don't melt, (that's not the quote - see below!)
