there were two things to celebrate today........
firstly, the wedding of my step daughter to her beau
secondly, the announcement of the winners of the #WhereforeARTThou project!
Super excited to receive the email, confirming the acceptance of my proposal.
There are so many exciting aspects to this commission:
Initially there will be a welcome meeting event on 1st Sept 2021 for artists to meet each other.
a) BRB Male dancers ballet class
b) Q & A with "Radio and Juliet" cast
c) Q & A with Artisitc Director of BRB Carlos Acosta
d) initial 1:1 with Kris and Davy from Studio McGuire.
Over the next 5 weeks further events will include 7 hrs of mentoring with Studie Maguire
Production of my artwork (hard work for me) to be installed on 2nd October - removed 17th Oct.
Exhibition VIP launch event
Master class with Ikon Gallery
Master class with Kris and Davy
BRB Masterclass with the technical production team
Q & A with Radio & Juliet choreographer, Edward Clug
VIP rehearsal viewing and invites to watch the ballet.
AND to top the lot - I will be paid for the privilege - I am so excited and can believe this fabulous opportunity has been offered to me.
My work is so complex, I feel as if i need to start work on my ideas as soon as I can, however, recieving the email during the wedding celebrations meant that I had to wait (until my hangover had eased) I'd returned home for following day!
I enjoyed the wedding, possibly too much! I waited the weekend out before feeling vibrant enough to start my designing stages
