NOTE, THIS WAS WRITTEN IN 2013, BUT THAT ISN’T EVIDENT ON THE POST.
Last month on Friday 1st February I launched Flow Advice by offering a huge TWELVE half-hour mentoring session to artists. All slots were taken and feedback tells me well received. So thanks to everyone for participating and I hope we talk again soon.
This month, launching on Friday 1st March, I want to do it again (but smaller – that was a big commitment!), but with a focus on mentoring women artists to celebrate International Women’s Day on 8th March. Maybe it is because my daughter suggested I should do it. Maybe it was my going through old artworks of mine last week and unearthing a commissioned video from years ago, for which I interviewed Bristol women from many cultural background to identify similarities, has been on my mind. Whatever the reason, I think its a good idea.
When I made that film in 2001 I believe my daughter was about 15 years old. Brilliant to see now that, as a fantastic woman who has studied human rights, she has adopted feminism into her life in the same way she has good food and enjoying art. I guess it was just part of everyday life.
So the free sessions for March are to celebrate International Womens Day and will be for women only. There will be only 2 sessions this month, each half an hour, so you need to book in quickly. The same system as last month, please complete the preliminary survey, so I have some understanding of what you do and what you would like to discuss.
And off we go!!!
N.B. PLEASE DON’T APPLY IF YOU HAVE ALREADY HAD A SESSION
