rollerskating legs background for skate of mind live

After almost a year of delays due to the pandemic, we actually managed to run our Skate of Mind Live event at Theatre Peckham!

As we were just coming out of lockdown we decided to scale back our ideas for the original event and take this an opportunity to run it as a test event with limited capacity.

To my surprise, it sold out within a few days of the tickets going on sale (no pressure then!).

This is a testament to the need and demand for indoor spaces in the run-up to autumn and winter at least.

Skate Of Mind Pod Live

After our original event was shelved due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, like many event’s “Skate of Mind” took life in an online form and became our Skate of Mind Podcast.

But now things are slowly reopening we have once again teamed up with Theatre Peckham, in an attempt to bring indoor rollerskating back to our corner of South East London!

whoUK Health Minister of Parliament, Matt Hancock appeared on ITV’s Good Morning Britain citing the film Contagion as one of his inspirations for his response to the Covid-19 Pandemic.

Matt Hancock says the film Contagion was ‘not his only’ source of advice on the issue of vaccines.

He says based on the epidemiological advice he was focused on ensuring the UK production of the vaccine protected the UK first.

For some strange reason, he appears to find this funny. Watch the video to see for yourself. Why am I posting about it here on a blog about creativity?

Well, this exchange made me think along these lines: Contagion = film. Film = creative industry. Government looks to the said creative industry to solve its problems, right?

It sure seems like it doesn’t it. But what support has the Government…

It’s world mental health awareness day, and I tried to kick my anxiety of podcasting to one side to create the Skate Of Mind Pod!!!

The first guest in the Skate Of Mind Pod was non-other than Yanka, aka “Jiggy Dust”.

Listen now via anchor.fm, Spotify.

Join us as we transform Theatre Peckham into a cinema for the first time with our screening of Fresh Dressed. Watch how the reach for freedom of expression and a better life by a culture that refused to be squashed, would, through sheer originality and swagger, take over the mainstream.

As with any photo or any piece artwork, be it public or private, there is a story.

Even for your next social media posts, there is a story behind it.

Be it where you re-shared it from, to how long it took to take the shot, whether it is interpreted as it was intended by its viewer or if the image even tells the “true story”.

Now on first glance, you may think this photo is to do with the current “statue debate” and only exists because of said debate, however, and somewhat ironically I guess, this shot was actually taken in London during one of many Black Lives Matter marches whilst at the same time in Bristol the already controversial statue of “slave-tradesman” Edward Colston was being toppled.
