And it’s off…

… to the the UK I go! I have been fortunate enough to be awarded one of the 5 positions available to take part in this year’s British Council ACCELERATE program.

I will be joining Solomon Booth, Michael Cook, Andrea James and Kimberley Moulton on a 3 week visit through the UK to explore new contacts, possible collaborations and further develop my leadership skills through a whirlwind ‘tour’ of the UK and it’s many arts organisations and activities.

My thanks goes to the Australia Council for the Arts, the Department of Culture and the Arts here in WA and the British Council Australia for making this dream a reality. This dream only really became an idea thanks to two individuals who took part in the first of these amazing exchanges. If both of these individuals hadn’t of convinced me that this was possible, I would never have considered this as a real opportunity for me.

Part of this adventure will be about me recording my daily observations. So stay tuned and we’ll see how this develops. More to follow soon…

About Belongum

People bring 'things' to me. Not necessarily PHYSICAL things as such - mostly just the loose bits and pieces floating around in their 'brain-box'. Sometimes, they also bring themselves - and THAT isn't anywhere near as simple as it sounds. I come here to pass some of this 'brain-box business' on to the ether world, and to empty my head. Besides folks - I love a good yarn - so come and join me!

      So true M… I don’t quite know what to make of it yet – it’s still not completely real yet. I’ve never been there before – so it’s an amazing opportunity! Was over your way last weekend as part of this – blurry cold! Ha… and if I thought THAT was cold – London in Nov? I’m mad!!! ;-)
