Greetings from London. The CAD project is ticking along nicely and we're all excited to be leading up to the performance in March. We've also been invited to interview for some funding by Sound Connections: we submitted two bids - one for their Reaching Out programme (for the second phase of the CAD project) and one for a Youth Mentor programme. I'll let you know how we get on.
Alongside this work, we've also been bought in by the Orpheus Centre (Richard Stilgoe's residential creative centre for disabled young adults). Gary Day, who is one of our London associates, who used to work with Drake Music in Ireland, is running the project. It is a fun project over this term and the focus is on the process rather than any particular outcomes so Gary has carte blanche to get creative! The first sessions yesterday and today have gone really well so far.
