Hi - I've started developing a piece of work around rock venues in Exeter that no longer exist (and some that do). Initially I'm planning a short podcast (maybe 15 mins) but hope to expand this, if I get enough material.
I'm looking to talk with people who actually attended gigs at the Savoy/ABC, Odeon, the Civic Hall (Higher Market) and other smaller venues in the 1960s/70s. If you did, or know someone who did and who would like to talk (as I imagine that most people will be in their 60s themselves now), please get in touch with me either via here or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Incidentally, does anyone know where the Athena Club was?
Geoff is holding two 'Walk, Talk & Tea' afternoons in the gallery on Saturdays, 28th Oct and 4th Nov, 2 - 4pm. £6, to include tea and cake! A lovely way to discover more about this interesting artist and a chance to put your own questions to him over tea and cake.
From November EncounterTT are partnering with Exeter Phoenix to host two monthly Creative Hub Laboratories.
TRAUMA & TRANSFORMATION, 1st Tuesday of every month 10:30 - 1:30pm (January session with be on Tuesday 9th)
What happens in crisis and how do new ways of being come about?
These experimental workshops are open to all artists who want to explore the theme of trauma on a personal and global scale through working with others in a compassionate and non-stigmatising space.
This is a chance to explore new ways to create meaningful work and connections in a relaxed and open environment. Together we will create pop-up performances to share with the people of Exeter.
Artists who have experience of mental health challenges due to crisis and/or trauma are welcome and will be supported to access the group.
