I’m excited about seeing this in four days for a number of reasons:
It’s an innovative project involving and aimed at providing stimulating opportunities for adults with learning difficulties, and..
It draws on some of the mysteries of the Dark Peak
It makes use of the dramatic scenery of the area
The storyline intrigues me
I have a little role in it, yet have not seen any of the scenes!
It will be shown at the start of the Creative fusion night this Thursday and you can be one of the first to see locally made film ‘The Return’ “The Return is a psychological thriller, set in and around Glossopdale, the film follows a film crew who come to Glossop to make a documentary, on their arrival they discover that there is something strange about this sleepy little town… are there ghosts? parallel dimensions? or is it all a hoax? The films psychological angle draws you in, whilst building the suspense, and feeding you information to keep your mind racing and questioning what is going on.
This is promising to be a good event, with authors, poets, and musicians signed up already. WANTED: Visual Images – see below
If you’re interested in contributing, there’s a pre-event meeting next Thursday 8th
We’re inviting visual images e.g. drawings/paintings/sketches,photographs, cartoons etc. to put together for a slideshow at the event.
If you have an original piece of work you would like to be included, please bring along to the meeting on the 8th or email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 10th January. We’re hoping to get some photos suitable for a little Caption Competition
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.
The group is a social group, with aims of bringing together people who have an interest in creativity, and would like to explore this with others. It is an informal group that is member lead. We hope that the social aspect of the group will also enable friendships to be formed as well as stimulating creative abilities and provoking your imagination. It should also prove beneficial to bring people from different creative backgrounds together.
There are a variety of, people attending the group, at the first two meetings we have had writers, artists, photographers, musicians, film makers and people that are interested in drama.
