The angel of my better brain did a thing. Well, she did several things actually – winning the Sheppard Robson Fabric Design Award to get her ‘soundcloth’ into the new BBC Cardiff building, as well as winning Student of the Year for Textiles 2018!

Her degree show focussed on the issue of homelessness and sustainable architecture and textiles as a response.
Way to go, champ 😉

All the other people you don’t have to sweat over. Don’t give them the space in your mind.
But there are those out there who wont care how awkward or difficult or weird or ugly you feel. They will still treat you with respect, they will still like you. They will still stand at your side.

Some of the creative team behind Singing For Our Lives are back, and this time their sights are set on global nuclear disarmament!
Nuclear Refrain is a crowdfunded project to develop writings, performances, and socially conscious art exploring nuclear weapons of mass destruction, (or MAD: Mutually Assured Destruction as it is known in the strategic literature) as well as nuclear power, nuclear waste, and particularly the UK’s upcoming Trident weapons system replacement.
Do we need nukes? Nuclear Refrain don’t think so!
What are they doing?
