We met for at the Darnley Gallery in Hackney for the first time as a group and got enthused and excited about the project. Not everybody was present but we made some headway on discussions for the theme/title for the show.
empty spaces; haunted places
rituals of space
the spirit of place
the unthought known
I was thinking about how we could promote our art and work, create some discourse and access new technologies through sites such as Tumblr and Pintrest as well as Facebook and Twitter. This could involve us doing micro artist blogs and a virtual online gallery. This brings up issues around confidentiality etc. and raises an interesting dilemma as both an artist and therapist: how do we manage the balance between promotion and privacy, tabla rasla and a priori? Maybe here we can begin to address these issues.
As the exhibition is in the February 2014 half term we will try to organise some workshops in conjunction with the exhibition through local schools and organisations. The centre is happy for us to use the art studio next to the gallery to run workshops.
