Dreams on Radio 4

This Friday morning at 11.00 on Radio 4, two girls who worked with Nina Perry at Clarendon Rd as part of verd de gris "Dreams" project will be 'appearing' in Nina's new broadcast piece for radio 'Mirror Mirror'. Have a listen!

On Monday at St Andrews Primary there was a 'coming together' of the 3 schools involved in the project. Representatives of the local Yemeni community, Yusuf and Mohammed from the Yemeni Community Assoc. also came and were so impressed by what the children had achieved and how respectful they were to them as visitors, to the school and during the poetry reading in particular.

I've just completed the edit for the animation. News on the Dreams exhibition soon.

Festival 07

It's festival time again!

After a hugely popular animation flipbook tent last year, I am pleased to be back for a bigger than ever Festival ‘07. Thursday 5th July is aimed at secondary school children, Friday 6th is aimed at primary school children and Saturday 7th is Youth Arts Festival day. I'll be in my tent for the full three days. Saturday is open to everyone - you can find me from 5-10pm.

There is also an opportunity to see some of the films I've produced over the last year with children and young people in the film tent between 12-6pm.

The films being shown are:

"Flipbooks 06" (The best flipbooks from Festival 06)

"Jack and the Beanstalk", Stepney School & Creative Partnerships Hull

"How Wilberforce Stopped the Slave Trade", Stepney School & Creative Partnerships Hull

"The Very Hungry Caterpillar", Bricknell School, BBC Hull

"Around the World in 80 Days", Animation Station

Last year, the festival attracted 900 Secondary Students, 1000 Primary Children and 2500 Young People!

Hope to see you there!
