Creative Social Group: ‘Creative Fusion’ Meeting 4th December

At the last meeting on Thursday, we discussed ideas for possible events to get the project up and running, and which had scope for a wide range of creative input from the group. Based on some material already produced/being developed by Nicola, Mark, Margaret and Pamela, we were able to outline a framework for a calendar of events to work on for 2015. The potential for ‘creatives/artists’ to collaborate with stories, poems, images, film, music, visual arts, dance, drama, comedy, performing arts (and?) is huge, only limited by resources/time. Of course, we have the challenge of getting creative about those too. Here are the suggested events – please ask questions, give feedback, share thoughts and ideas. Also possible venues.
1. Suggested date early January: Creative Fusion showcase/Open Mic.
2. Suggested date Last week February: Creative Fusion presents ‘The Snow Queen’
3. Suggested dates: Midsummer – Bankswood Inspire Festival: Festival date to be confirmed – Creative Fusion presents ‘Folklore’
4. Suggested date: Hallowe’en: Creative Fusion presents ‘The Riddle’

Our ‘Creative Fusion’ event will raise money for Life you choose, which is a local group for people with learning difficulties. The organisers are currently working towards the group becoming a charity, which will be open 5 days a week.
