The Elleesium Song

The heavens are always a-light in the dark and dark is always lit with lights
Call on the dark call on the lights and light up the heavens with your dreams
For the dreams are that what shapes the steel that makes your architectonics
That what makes us human are the songs that arise out of our dreams as gulls
Free the seas free the skies free the seagulls in your soul and sing all a-light

Culture is not what is 'brewed', 'orchestrated' though many and varied manipulations or made 'fashionable' by propaganda; rather it is an expression and celebration of the beauty of all that human imagination, creativity, ingenuity and work, and through them, the resultant of all human interactions, have been able to create. Culture is not a museum or an art gallery or a theatre or an opera or ballet house; Culture is that what cannot simply be put in a cup or plate that people could be asked to 'drink' or 'eat'. Culture is simply a means for humanity to stand before and look at the mirror and 'see' what they have been about and what they have done, been and become.

David Lammy MP and Ben Okri Join a Stellar Line Up in Celebration of  Nelson Mandela: His Letters: His Legacy in London: July 17

 

 

|| July 04: 2018 || ά. The English PEN is hosting a special one-off evening to celebrate the centenary of Nelson Mandela’s birth. Esteemed guests from the worlds of literature, politics, journalism and activism will come together to perform readings of original letters written by Nelson Mandela during his time in prison, many of which have remained unpublished until now. Celebrating Nelson Mandela: His Letters: His Legacy: is taking place on Tuesday, July 17 at 18:30-21:00 at the Union Chapel in London.

Mr David Lammy MP for Tottenham and Man Boooker Prize-winning Poet and Novelist Mr Ben Okri are confirmed to join the stellar line-up in celebration of a human being, who the world is moving away from: away from the light, away from reason and far away from the rule of law and of humanity, human bond and connection, humanity and compassion and in this ‘stampede’ the world  seems to be led towards a raging darkness against which he existed fighting all his life, Nelson Mandela.

Produced and directed by the award-winning Ms Josette Bushell-Mingo   OBE, the evening’s will include Journalist Mr Gary Younge, Poet and Novelist Ms Jackie Kay, South African-Scottish Writer and Campaigner Ms Zoe Wicomb, winner of the 2017 Ted Hughes Award Mr Jay Bernard, Actor and Artistic Director of the Young Vic Theatre MR Kwame Kwei-Armah and Composer Ms Errollyn Wallen.

The Prison Letters of Nelson Mandela will be published by Liveright on July 10. The book’s Editor Ms Sahm Venter and Nelson Mandela’s granddaughter, Ms Zamaswazi Dlamini-Mandela, who provided the foreword to the book, will be involved in the evening’s celebrations.

The letters provide a deeply personal view of Mandela’s imprisonment, painting an intimate portrait of a political activist, who was as much a devoted husband, adoring father, dedicated student, studying for a law degree behind bars and abiding friend.

This is an opportunity to celebrate and uphold Nelson Mandela’s legacy of championing human rights. Through the work of English PEN, a leading advocate for freedom of expression in the UK and around the world, thousands of letters are still being received by writers, who, even today, find themselves persecuted and imprisoned for speaking out. 

This event will be BSL interpreted, contact the Union Chapel with any access requirements. :::ω.

Peter Harrington Is Exhibiting with Theo Fennell at Fulham Road Theo Fennel Gallery Until July 12

 

 

|| July 02: 2018 || ά. Peter Harrington, the UK’s largest rare bookseller, has collaborated with its London neighbour, British Jewellery Designer Mr Theo Fennell, to launch a new Exhibition within the Theo Fennell Gallery in London’s Fulham Road. The Exhibition runs on until Thursday, July 12 at Theo Fennell Gallery, 169 Fulham Road, London, SW3 6SP and the Gallery is open from 10:00-18:00: Monday to Saturday.  But one supposes that the Bookseller would like to sell books while the Designer would like to sell the design, artwork and jewellery etc and the visitors would, rather take a look and make a feel and say: that speaks to me and that does not.

However, one must make a visit and take a look and, if, one does, please, pass on our best to both the bookselling people and the art-designing ones, as well. The Exhibition features rare Peter Harrington books from the 15th to 20th century, including, Goldfinger, The Secret Garden, The Arabian Nights, The Seven Pillars of Wisdom and The Complete Pooh Series, which have been paired with Mr Theo Fennell related jewellery pieces, including, The Colosseum Ring, The Henry V Brooch, The Oscar Wilde Ring, The Empty Quarter Ring and the Emerald City Ring.

Mr Pom Harrington, the owner of Peter Harrington, said, “We are excited to have curated this fascinating exhibition of some of our most popular and beautiful rare books with Theo Fennell’s fabulous and innovative jewellery. 

Both of our brands have similar values and look forward to working on more collaborations with Theo Fennell in the future.”

Mr Theo Fennell said, “I have, really, enjoyed this collaboration with Peter Harrington as it has allowed me to indulge in one of my greatest passions and a source of endless inspiration, books. Harrington’s, always, have such an eclectic selection that it is one of my dream places to gather ideas. I believe that, as well as, being original and beautifully made, jewellery should be thoughtful, sentimental and provocative.”

Peter Harrington is are 100 Fulham Road and 43 Dover Street and it is run by Mr Pom Harrington, who has been part of the business for almost 25 years, having taken over the running of Peter Harrington in 2000. He has surrounded himself with experienced experts, many of whom are internationally known, and are as passionate about books as he is. :::ω.

Lily Cole Presents Her Fellowship Film Project at the Foundling Museum: July 31- December 02

 

 

|| June 30: 2018 || ά. The Foundling Museum Fellow Ms Lily Cole is directing a short film for her Foundling Fellowship project, in partnership with the Brontë Parsonage Museum, Yorkshire. Developed for the Foundling Museum and Brontë Parsonage Museum to mark the 200th anniversary of Emily Brontë’s birth, Balls will be showcased at both institutions simultaneously. Ms Cole’s film is inspired by two separate but intertwined stories; the real lives of desperate women and the babies they gave up to the care of the Foundling Hospital in the nineteenth century, which are meticulously documented in the Hospital’s archives and Heathcliff, the foundling antihero from Brontë’s much-loved novel Wuthering Heights.

The film is set in modern-day Liverpool, the city from which Heathcliff was rescued. Balls explores the links between the Foundling Hospital story and Brontë’s novel and reflects on the progress of women’s rights over the past two hundred years. In addition to the film, each museum is displaying objects from the other’s Collection, which relate to Brontë, her sources of inspiration and the Foundling Hospital story, thereby, providing an insight into Ms Cole’s research and a deeper understanding of the narratives, that run through the film. Ms Caro Howell, Director of the Foundling Museum, said, ''Behind the emotionally compelling story of the Foundling Hospital and Heathcliff are women. Yet, their narratives are either absent, inferred or, only, partially, sketched.

In Balls, Cole shines a light on these known and unknown nineteenth century wome,  whose lives were so circumscribed by society and considers the extent to which progress has been made.''

Ms Jenna Holmes, Audience Development Officer at the Brontë Parsonage Museum,  said, ''We’re delighted to be partnering with the Foundling Museum and Lily Cole on this exciting project. Emily Brontë is associated with the moors and nature but, in actual fact, Wuthering Heights was a novel written in the heart of the industrial north. Its themes of identity, origins and belonging are of particular relevance to a modern audience and Lily Cole’s exploration of them through her film will highlight the ongoing connection between Emily Brontë’s world and contemporary society.''

Balls has been co-written by Ms Lily Cole and Ms Stacey Gregg and produced by Ms Kate Wilson of Fury Films. The film has been made possible with support from Arts Council England.

The biennial Foundling Fellowship Scheme was established in 2008 with funding from the Clore Duffield Foundation. For each cycle, three leading creative figures are selected to join the Fellowship. Each Fellow devises a project, that animates the relationship between philanthropy, creativity and children’s welfare, inspired by the principles of the great founding figures of the original Foundling Hospital: philanthropist Thomas Coram, composer George Frideric Handel and artist William Hogarth. Twelve Fellows have been appointed to date and include Ms Cornelia Parker, Mr Grayson Perry, Mr Yinka Shonibare MBE and Ms Jacqueline Wilson. Ms Lily Cole joins musician Mr Sam Lee and artist Mr Bob and Ms Roberta Smith as the Museum’s 2016 fellows. 

Ms Lily Cole spends her time on art and activism. As an advocate for socio-political and environmental issues, she has employed technology, writing, filmmaking and public speaking as means to build awareness and encourage dialogue. Ms Cole was awarded a First Class BA in History of Art from Cambridge University in 2011. In 2013 she co-founded Impossible.com: a technology company, that uses technology to solve social and environmental problems. She has spoken at Davos, Google's Zeitgeist, Wired and Web Summit, was an affiliate at the Berkman Centre at Harvard University and holds an Honorary Doctor of Letters from GCU. Ms Cole is a patron of the EJF and has worked significantly with WWF. She writes, ofte,  for national and international press. Impossible Utopias is her first book. 

She has worked with notable photographers and artists. In 2009 she played the female lead in Terry Gilliam’s The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus. Since then she has made over fifteen films and performed at the Globe Theatre and The Old Vic Theatre. Ms Cole wrote and presented a six-part TV series on contemporary art for Sky Arts, shoots photography and has directed several short films. She is working with the Brontë Parsonage Museum as a creative partner during 2018, the bicentenary of the birth of Emily Brontë.

The Foundling Museum explores the history of the Foundling Hospital, the UK’s first children’s charity and first public art gallery  and through a dynamic programme of exhibitions and events celebrates the ways in which artists of all disciplines have helped improve children’s lives for over 275 years.

The Foundling Hospital, which continues today as the children’s charity Coram, was established in 1739 by the philanthropist Captain Thomas Coram, as ‘a hospital for the maintenance and education of exposed and deserted young children’. Instrumental in helping Coram realise his vision were the artist William Hogarth, who encouraged leading artists of the day to donate work and the composer George Frederic Handel, who gave annual benefit concerts of his Messiah. In doing so, they created London’s first public art gallery and set the template for the way in which the arts can support philanthropy.

Coram has been creating better chances for children since 1739. They help children and young people today through their pioneering work in adoption, parenting support, housing support, alcohol and drug education, creative therapies and championing legal rights in the UK and overseas.

Heathrow Expansion: The London Assembly Unanimously Opposes the Expansion of Heathrow Airport on the Grounds of Air Pollution Noise and the Health Impact It Will Have on Londoners



|| June 25: 2018 || ά. Following the outcome of the Commons Vote on Heathrow Expansion, in which the majority of MPs voted in favour, Mr Tony Arbour Am, the Chairman of the London Assembly, said, “The London Assembly unanimously opposes the expansion of Heathrow airport on the grounds of air pollution, noise and the health impact it will have on Londoners. Together with the Mayor we shall seek to overturn this calamitous decision, which can only increase the environmental harm that the airport already creates.”

On June 07, The Assembly reaffirmed its opposition to Heathrow Airport expansion: The Assembly said, ‘’973,000 households around Heathrow will experience increased day time noise, if, a third runway is built. As a number of fundamental issues remain unresolved with expansion, like noise and essential surface transport improvements, the London Assembly agreed a unanimous motion today asserting its opposition to the expansion of Heathrow Airport.’’ Ms Caroline Pidgeon AM, who proposed the motion said, “The case for a third Heathrow runway is based on a number of false claims, such as, the myth that there is no spare capacity at other airports in the South East of England or that long distance international flights can only be via Heathrow.

But one absolute certainty is that a third runway will create noise disturbance for a further 300,000 people and add to higher levels of air pollution in parts of London where air pollution already exceeds illegal levels.

We can ensure we retain international connections without following the foolish option of the incredibly expensive third Heathrow runway. A third Heathrow runway comes at a huge price that is simply not worth paying for.”

Ms Léonie Cooper AM, who seconded the motion, said, “The Government’s recent decision to expand Heathrow airport and support the building of a third runway will have a far-reaching impact on almost a million London households within the next thirty years.

There are numerous issues that are yet to be resolved with the prospect of a third runway. In addition, the current plans to mitigate its adverse effects on the surrounding environment and the health and social wellbeing of local communities are inadequate.

“It is clear that the potential costs and risks to Londoners outweigh the projected economic benefits of the expansion- especially when there are still opportunities to be properly explored at other airports in the South East. This is why I have backed this motion to reiterate why the Government’s decision should be robustly opposed.”

The full text of the motion is:

“The Assembly notes the Government’s policy as set out in a National Policy Statement supporting the expansion of Heathrow Airport and a third runway. The Assembly notes that around 673,000 households are already affected by Heathrow’s two runways, but Civil Aviation Authority documents released after a freedom of information request have revealed that 973,000 households around Heathrow will experience increased daytime noise by 2050 after a third runway is built.

The Assembly further notes that spare capacity exists in many South East airports and that international air travel from other regional airports such as Birmingham, Manchester and Edinburgh could also support point to point international connections, assisting UK passengers and businesses.

The Assembly acknowledges the work carried out by Transport for London (TfL) which estimates the cost of surface transport improvements to meet the needs of an expanded Heathrow airport to be underestimated by more than £10 billion by the Airports Commission.

The Assembly further acknowledges the recent work of the House of Commons Transport Committee which, despite previously supporting Heathrow expansion, has made it clear that additional safeguards are needed before any vote takes place in Parliament to ensure that the adverse environmental, social and health impacts on affected communities of a third Heathrow runway are fully addressed. The Committee also highlighted the need to address waste management issues as a result of the need to move the Lakeside Energy from Waste plant from its current location if a further runway is built at Heathrow.

The Assembly believes that many fundamental issues remain unresolved about the expansion of Heathrow airport. The Assembly therefore wishes to reiterate its long-standing opposition to a third runway at Heathrow airport and the Assembly resolves that, in the light of its fundamental objection to this, we will campaign to prevent its implementation.

The Assembly asks the Mayor to join with us to ensure that this threat to the health and environment of Londoners does not materialise.’’

The Environment Committee of The Assembly has written to all MPs on June 21 outlining the reasons for which it opposes the expansion. :::ω.

UCL East in the London’s East Bank with a £100 Million Government Funding
 

|| June 06: 2018: UCL News || ά. UCL has secured £100 million from the Government towards the capital cost of building its new campus, UCL East. The final confirmation of the funding was announced as the University showcased UCL East and the current east London projects during a launch event hosted by the Mayor of London to unveil the vision for East Bank, which was previously the Cultural and Education District.

East Bank will be a new destination for London with world-class culture and education at its heart. As one of the founding partners along with UAL’s London College of Fashion, Sadler’s Wells and the Victoria and Albert Museum, including, a partnership with the Smithsonian Institution, UCL is receiving the majority share of the Government’s £151 millionm contribution to the project. The Mayor of London, Mr Sadiq Khan, said, “Great cities are defined by their ambition as much as their achievements; East Bank is the most ambitious new project of its kind for decades.

I have made culture a top priority and as London’s centre of gravity has moved east, I’m delighted that we’re placing culture and education at the heart of this development and the Olympic legacy.” This is another significant milestone for UCL East and follows other news that the BBC is joining the list of world-class culture and education institutions, that will form East Bank, by creating a new home for the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus and BBC Singers. As the partners unveiled their building plans, the Mayor made a commitment that at least 50 per cent of new homes across the remaining development sites on the Park will be affordable.

“My vision for East Bank is one where everyone, regardless of their background, can access world-class culture on their doorstep. East Bank will inspire more young Londoners to take up creative careers and transform the communities of east London.” Professor Michael Arthur, UCL President and Provost, said, “As one of the world’s leading universities, we address many of the most pressing global challenges of our time. UCL East will take this one step further.

Our new campus will bring together seven UCL faculties to generate radical and innovative research and teaching programmes. These will range from robotics, artificial intelligence and media, to innovative finance, global health leadership, advanced propulsion and sustainable cities. UCL East captures our commitment to creating a diverse, open and accessible site, with spaces for making and advanced manufacturing, object-based learning and conservation, and performances and exhibitions.

Our staff will work with, and for, the benefit of local communities.” To celebrate projects already underway on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, the work of the UCL’s Global Disability Innovation Hub was presented at the event, alongside other projects by other East Bank partners. The GDI Hub, launched in 2016, was born out the legacy of the London 2012 Paralympic Games and is a leading voice on disability innovation and design, developing impactful low-cost solutions with the potential to make a global impact. It is led by UCL in collaboration with UAL’s London College of Fashion, Victoria and Albert Museum, Sadler’s Wells, Loughborough University London, Leonard Cheshire Disability and the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design.

This year, the GDI Hub launched a new MSc in Disability, Design and Innovation, with full scholarships for disabled students and became part of a €05 million project to develop wheelchairs, that can self-navigate in crowds, with Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park being the demonstrator site.

Dr Catherine Holloway, Academic Director of the GDI Hub and Senior Lecturer at UCL Computer Science, said, “Our multi-partner and truly multidisciplinary approach has brought community partners and start-ups together with academics and businesses to think about disability innovation from a new perspective. We are firmly rooted in east London and from here, we answer research questions and create innovative solutions for disabled people around the world.”

Mr Kamran Malik, CEO of Disability Rights UK, said, “We believe true innovation happens when it is led by disabled people. The GDI Hub is doing this and creating a community of disabled people leading innovation together, working on solutions to remove and overcome barriers to an inclusive society.

The GDI Hub brings an academic and scientific approach to problem solving with its unique focus on disability equality.”

Eat As Much Vegetable As Your Soul Desires So Long You Call It Vegetable Without Any Relation to Something Else: Linda's Veggie Table is Back in London Fitzrovia: May 19-20


|| May 19: 2018 || ά. And this is why the head line is as it is: those, who are seeking to support 'vegetarian' food, keep speaking about meat. Vegetable is vegetable and it has no link or relation to the meat kind other than a terribly faint one in the fact that they all belong to the living things kingdom. Vegetable is 'not meat free'; it is, simply, surely and purely, good old 'vegetable'. And there are, almost, infinite numbers and verities of vegetable available in the world that one can eat a hundred years of life on a different vegetable in every meal and there will still be millions of different other vegetable left! Meat has a tiny little offer against this richness of and in vegetables! When vegetable is described as 'meat free' it is, as, if, someone is saying, 'alcohol free water'! Why does water has to be described as 'alcohol free', when it is surely and purely 'water'! Therefore, we invite everyone involved in this vegetarian food industry to stop apologising for vegetable and stop starting anything to do with 'vegetarian' food with 'meat free' and just start using vegetable meals, vegetarian food etc! 

Having defended the 'honour, dignity and status' of the vegetables, here is the news that vegetarian eating extravaganza is being hosted by Mr Jay McGuiness to celebrate National Vegetarian Week, May 13-20. Following the success of the inaugural event last year Linda’s Veggie Table, a celebration of the very best in vegetarian eating, is back for a second year running.

Marking the start of National Vegetarian Week, Linda’s Veggie Table opened the proceedings in Bristol on May 12-13 before heading to London Fitzrovia to finish off the festivities on May 19-20. The Wanted star Mr Jay McGuiness, a vegetarian and keen cook, who has his own vegetarian lifestyle book lined up for future release, is returning to front the event for a second time. Rolling up his sleeves alongside the Linda McCartney’s team, he will help demonstrate how to create healthy, tasty and simple vegetarian meals, that can easily be recreated in the comfort of your own home.

Vegetarians, vegans and meat-reducers alike will be invited to relax and mingle in Linda’s Lounge while enjoying a selection of delicious mocktails and canapes, before Mr McGuiness and the Linda McCartney’s in house chef take centre stage. Cooking up a variety of delicious recipes, the duo will be on hand to answer the crowd’s vegetarian questions and showcase the versatility and flavours, that can be enjoyed as part of a vegetarian diet. There will, also, be a chance to win a special prize of Linda McCartney’s product, giving the lucky winner the perfect opportunity to get creative in their own kitchen. So, whether you’re looking to liven up your dinners, show your friends just how tasty your vegetarian lifestyle can be or hone your veggie cooking skills, you’re sure to find some inspiration at Linda’s Veggie Table. Tickets to Linda’s Veggie Table are available from EventBrite for £10.

All proceeds from the event, exclusive of booking fee, will be donated to The Trussell Trust.

About Robert John: Robert John, is an artist from Tooting, South London of Pakistani descent. He has worked across many agencies his career as a designer, including, the BBC. In late 2012 he started an art project, What I See When I Look At. The idea for the project was inspired by his father. Mr John's father lived with Parkinson’s for many years until his death. During which time, his father developed Parkinson’s dementia, he began seeing things, which were not visible to anyone else, yet, they were so real to him, he could see these things, smell them, even, touch and feel them. This made Mr John think about what our concepts of reality are and what we choose to actually see.

It, also, reminded him of how as a child he would create elaborate worlds and places in his imagination, his project asks us to go back to that imagination and show everyone what we see in the world around us. The project was featured in many publications and online. It is now in it’s third annual show, with hundreds having visited the show and thousands engaging with it online. Mr John will be working with Unicorn Publishing Group with the release of a book based on the project, with brand new
work exclusively for the book to be released in 2019. He would like to continue to grow the project with more shows across the UK.

Seminar at the Migration Museum London: What Role Does the Media Play in the National Migration Debate: May 09

 

 

|| May 02: 2018 || ά. The Migration Museum London is organising a timely Seminar, What Role Does the Media Play in the National Migration Debate on Wednesday, May 09, between 18:30 and 20:00 at the Workshop, 26 Lambeth High Street, London, SE1 7AG. The event is free but ticketed and suggested donation of £05 is requested to be paid as contributions to support the work o f the Museum. The mistreatment of the 'Windrush generation' has dominated the front pages in recent weeks, with media reporting playing a positive role in bringing the story to the public's attention. But many headline stories about migration are far more negative and sensationalist in tone.

The role, that the media plays in national debates about migration is one of the themes explored in the Museum's 'No Turning Back: Seven Migration Moments That Changed Britain' exhibition and a subject, that has sparked a great deal of discussion and debate among visitors. To what extent does coverage of migration by the media shape and influence perceptions and debates around migration? Or is our media merely reflecting and reporting on views and debates, that are, already, being had across the country? A panel of journalists and researchers will join in on the day to discuss and explore these questions at the Museum.

The discussion will be chaired by Mr Sunder Katwala, Director of the think tank British Future. He is a former journalist.

Jodie Carey's Sea at the Foundling Museum: May 25-September 02
 

 

 

 

|| April 20: 2018 || ά. The Foundling Museum is bringing in a new series of site-responsive installations by Artist Ms Jodie Carey, commissioned by the Museum for display in the exhibition gallery and among the historic Collection. Ms Carey’s response to the history of the Foundling Hospital has been to create a series of striking works, that explore themes of love, loss and trace. Imbued with a sense of remembrance, these sculptures encourage visitors to reflect on the thousands of children, who passed through the Foundling Hospital from the 1740s-1950s and the fragility of human life and relationships. Sea will be running between May 25 and September 02.

Her recent work has explored themes of mortality and memory through combining monumental scale with vulnerable materials, using techniques, that result in the act of creation remaining visible. Drawing inspiration from the eighteenth-century fabric tokens left by mothers with their babies at the Foundling Hospital as a means of identification, Sea is a large scale installation for Museum’s exhibition gallery. Sea is formed of hundreds of swatches of fabric, that have been dipped in liquid clay and fired to create delicate, white ceramic fragments, that cover the gallery floor.

During the firing process, the fabric burns away leaving only a trace of its weave and pattern, echoing the fragility of the textile tokens, which are one of the few remaining and tangible connections between each mother and her child. The mothers’ intense feelings of separation and loss find a visual analogy in Ms Carey’s vast ceramic outpouring. However, despite its overwhelming scale, Sea asks the viewer to recognise the detail of each unique cast and to see each as a small memorial and an act of remembrance. And, when people 'remember' something, that is not part of their memories but others' is what we call celebrations: celebrations of humanity. 

Among the Museum’s historic Collection on the first floor, two monumental works explore ideas of memory and time. Found is formed of 18 life-size, totemic sculptures, that crowd the Anteroom, each cast from the void left by rolls of fabric buried in soil. Found creates an environment that feels both natural and sacred and suggestive of a ruin or archaeological find.

The poured plaster bears traces of the land in which the sculptures were cast, centuries of soil, stones and plant roots. This earth-bound process resonates with the elemental nature of the Foundling Hospital narrative of love, loss, hope and survival. In casting bolts of fabric, Ms Carey references the significant role, that cloth played in the Hospital’s story, as emblems of hope for the mothers, methods of identification for the institution and routes of employment for the children, while, final marks made by the artist using tailors chalk, are suggestive of storytelling. 

Cord, displayed in the Foyer, is a delicate and slender bronze sculpture, that stands floor to ceiling. Cast in bronze from cord buried in the earth, the sculpture appears both fragile and brittle, its contorted appearance belying its material strength. Referencing not only the bond between mother and child but, also, the relationship between institution and foundling, Cord seeks to make visible the fragility of relationships so fundamental to human existence and questions whether such bonds can, ever, be broken.

Ms Kathleen Palmer, Curator: Exhibitions and Displays, said, ''We are delighted with this thoughtful and touching new work by Jodie Carey, which so deeply resonates with the histories we tell. The Foundling Museum's commissions from contemporary artists spark new and revealing conversations between the past and the present, changing and deepening how we and our visitors understand the Foundling Hospital story.''

Ms Jodie Carey said, ''I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to make new work for the Foundling Museum. It is a deeply moving museum, and a challenging and emotional space to respond to. I am honoured to be part of its extraordinary history.''

These commissions form part of the Museum’s 2018 programme of exhibitions, displays and events to mark the centenary of female suffrage, by celebrating women’s contribution to British society, culture and philanthropy from the 1720s to the present day. 

Md Jodie Carey studied at Goldsmiths College, completing an MA in sculpture at the Royal College of Art in 2007. Solo exhibitions include Earthcasts, Edel Assanti, London, 2017, Dark night by daylight, Hå gamle prestegard, Norway, 2014 and Solomon's Knot, the New Art Gallery Walsall, 2012. Recent group shows include the London Open, Whitechapel Gallery, London, 2015, Eros and Freud, the Freud Museum, London, 2014 and Death: A Self Portrait at the Wellcome Collection, London, 2012.

The Foundling Museum explores the history of the Foundling Hospital, the UK’s first children’s charity and first public art gallery and through a dynamic programme of exhibitions and events celebrates the ways in which artists of all disciplines have helped improve children’s lives for over 275 years. 

The Foundling Hospital, which continues today as the children’s charity Coram, was established in 1739 by the philanthropist Captain Thomas Coram, as ‘a hospital for the maintenance and education of exposed and deserted young children’. Instrumental in helping Coram realise his vision were the artist William Hogarth, who encouraged leading artists of the day to donate work and the composer George Frederic Handel, who gave annual benefit concerts of his Messiah. In doing so, they created London’s first public art gallery and set the template for the way in which the arts can support philanthropy.

Coram has been creating better chances for children since 1739. They help children and young people today through their pioneering work in adoption, parenting support, housing support, alcohol and drug education, creative therapies and championing legal rights in the UK and overseas.

Dulwich Picture Gallery's New Print Making Collaboration with Artist Orlando Weeks in Relation to Edward Bawden Exhibition: May 23-September 09


 


|| April 17: 2018 || ά. An new collaboration between Dulwich Picture Gallery and Mr Orlando Weeks will see the former Maccabees frontman-turned illustrator and author, create a limited edition print to coincide with the Gallery’s forthcoming exhibition of the celebrated artist and designer, Edward Bawden RA CBE,1903-89. The Gallery will produce a short film,  that follows Mr Weeks as he works with East London-based artist printmaker, Mr Alex Booker, to create his own print and delves into the various processes involved in linocut printing, a technique that Bawden mastered during his career. Weeks will also reveal the elements of Bawden’s style that have particularly inspired his own practice as an illustrator.

Mr Weeks, who studied illustration at Brighton University, has cited Bawden as a key influence in his work and said, “It's been a treat trying to better understand one of the print making aspects of Bawden's practice by attempting to make a print myself. Bawden bounced from discipline to discipline, managing to cultivate a nauseatingly envious style of his own in each one. He could do funny but didn’t rely on his humour and he could do poignant without becoming sentimental. He refused to be bound by what others considered high or low art - up and down that "scale" he made work that gives me great pleasure to look at over and over again.”

The film will be available to watch on the Gallery's website from the first week of June. A limited run of Mr Weeks’ print, which depicts the Roundhouse in Camden, will be for sale online and in the Gallery’s shop throughout the duration of the Edward Bawden exhibition, which runs from May 23-September 09.

Orlando Weeks: Mr Orlando Weeks studied Illustration at Brighton University before spending over a decade in the band The Maccabees. Since the group's decision to call it a day in 2017 he has released The Gritterman. Published by Penguin, the book is written and illustrated by Mr Weeks and is accompanied by an album of original music with narration by Mr Paul Whitehouse. 

Alex Booker: Mr Alex Booker is a leading print artist, based in the Limehouse Arts Foundation, where he runs the Booker Print House. His work explores the properties of ink and wood and is, often, influenced by his long-standing fascination with the sea, landscape and fictional narrative. Alex has exhibited his print artworks internationally, including, the Royal Academy of Arts: Summer Show 2014.

Edward Bawden at Dulwich Picture Gallery: May 23 May-September 09: Edward Bawden RA CBE, 1903-89, is widely respected as an innovative graphic designer, book illustrator and printmaker, best known today for his monumental linocuts and for the witty designs he made for companies like Shell and Fortnum and Mason. The forthcoming exhibition at Dulwich Picture Gallery will be the most wide-ranging exhibition since Bawden’s death and the first to look at every aspect of his 60-year career, showcasing a number of previously unseen works from the Bawden family’s private collection. ::: ω.

Stop the War Coalition March in London: First April 13: Second April 16: Stop the Rush to War: Don't Bomb Syria

United Kingdom Needs No War But the Homeless Need Homes and the Working Poor Families Need Living Wage: UK NHS Needs More Resources: Social Care Needs Resources: UK Schools and Social Services and Youth and Community Services and the Police and the Housing Need More Resources and the University Students Need to Be Freed from Debt-Bondage and Rough Sleeping Must End: Millions in Poverty Need to Be Lifted from Desperate Existence: Get on with Resolving These Instead of Getting the Country Into a New and Dangerous Mess of Yet Another War

 

 

|| April 12: 2018 || ά. In a statement Stop the War Coalition says, ‘’Theresa May has put RAF bombers on standby to start airstrikes on Syria. The stakes are obviously extremely high, but opinion polls suggest public opinion is firmly against military action. Only 22% of respondents in a You Gov poll said they would support airstrikes on Syria. More bombing would prolong the agony of the Syrian people and risk causing a catastrophic war with Russia.

We are urging groups to organise protests. Protests are taking place tomorrow and over the weekend in Sheffield, Nottingham, Norwich, Cardiff, Edinburgh and street stalls in many other places.’’ In London the protest is taking place on Friday, April 13 at 17:00 at Downing Street, when a letter will be handed-in to the Prime Minister urging her to pull back from the brink. There is a second protest on Parliament Square, taking place on Monday, April 16 at 17:30, which is when Parliament returns.

The Coalition is urging people to lobby their MPs to oppose military action and to organise street petitioning, stalls and protests.  Ms Francesca Martinez, Author and Comedian, says, ‘’This is an extremely dangerous moment for the world, as the threat of direct confrontation between the great powers looms large.

With Trump threatening a US missile attack with a tweet ‘Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and ‘smart!’ and Theresa May putting the RAF on standby to join an attack, Stop the War needs to intensify its campaign so we are asking for your generous help to make this possible. There has never been a more important time to support the anti-war movement.’’ ::: ω.

Narratives are Created: One for the Purpose of Understanding the Meaning of Human Existence and One for the Purposes of Directing Manipulating and Herding the Mass: That is Why There is Ethics Involved in It: That is Why Professor Hanna Meretoja's Book The Ethics of Story Telling is Timely: Her Book is Discussed at a Symposium at the University of East London Stratford: May 11



|| April 12: 2018: University of Turku News: Maria Vasenkari Writing || ά. Cultural models of sense-making shape our views about who we are and who we could be, what is possible for us as individuals and as communities. Professor Hanna Meretoja’s new book, The Ethics of Storytelling, provides us with tools for analysing cultural narrative models and understanding the power of literary narratives to expand our sense of the possible. The Ethics of Storytelling was published in the book launch organised by the Literature Departments of the University of Turku on March 14. Professor Meretoja’s book will be discussed at the Centre for Narrative Research at the University of East London, University Square, Stratford Campus, London. The Centre organises a symposium around The Ethics of Storytelling on  May 11.

The event involves a roundtable in which the book is to be discussed by Professor Matti Hyvärinen, Dr Maarit Leskelä-Kärki, Professor Jakob Lothe, Professor Ann Phoenix and Professor Brian Schiff. ​The Ethics of Storytelling: Narrative Hermeneutics, History and the Possible, a new research monograph by Professor Hanna Meretoja, of Comparative Literature at the University of Turku, Finland, brings into dialogue narrative ethics, literary narrative studies, narrative psychology, narrative philosophy and cultural memory studies. The book was published by Oxford University Press. The discussion on the ethical significance of storytelling has been dominated by polarised views on the benefits and dangers of narrative.

Against the backdrop of this debate, Professor Meretoja develops narrative hermeneutics as a nuanced theoretical-analytical framework for engaging with the ethical complexity of the roles narratives play in our lives. ''The ethical potential of literature is crucially linked to the ways in which literary narratives open up new possibilities of thought, experience, action and imagination and cultivate our awareness of and sensitivity to different perspectives.'' Professor Meretoja argues.

The key question in the book is how literary and historical narratives shape our sense of the possible. ''The sense of the possible refers to our sense of what was or is possible to experience, think, feel and do in a certain historical and cultural world. Our sense of the possible, also, concerns our ability to imagine how things could be otherwise.'' Professor Meretoja explains. She argues that our sense of the possible is shaped by the relationship between our narrative unconscious and narrative imagination.

''Cultural narrative models shape how we perceive, for example, good life, gender and success and they condition our actions and attitudes without our awareness. Literary narratives, that make such narrative models visible can enrich our narrative imagination and help us gain critical distance from culturally available narrative identities.

Professor Meretoja analyses literary and autobiographical narratives, that deal with 20th century historical traumas. Most important of these narratives are Julia Franck’s The Blind Side of the Heart 2007, Günter Grass’s Peeling the Onion 2006, Jonathan Littell’s The Kindly Ones 2007 and David Grossman’s To the End of the Land 2008 and Falling Out of Time 2011.

''In dialogue with these narratives, I address our implication in violent histories and argue that it is as dialogic storytellers, fundamentally, vulnerable and dependent on one another, where we become who we are, both as individuals and communities.''' Professpr Meretoja summarises.

The legacy of the Holocaust and the Second World War shows the dangerous power of storytelling. ''The Nazis built a mythology, that provided the Germans with a strong narrative identity as 'Aryans' but, at the same time, it, drastically, diminished the possibilities of the Jews and several other minorities to the point of denying them the right to live. In the book, the European legacy of fascism is discussed in relation to more recent political turmoil, such as, the Israel-Palestine conflict and the rise of right-wing populist narratives.

''In order to understand the atrocities of the past, such as, the Holocaust, and contemporary terrorism, we should, instead of demonising the evil-doers, try to imagine not only the perspectives and experiential world of the victims but, also, that of the perpetrators and various implicated subjects. Only then can we properly engage with the conditions, that made the atrocities possible.

The book develops a heuristic model for evaluating the ethical potential and dangers of different kinds of narratives. It provides six evaluative continuums on which narratives can be placed. These continuums explore whether narratives i: expand or diminish our sense of the possible; ii: develop or distort our self-understanding; iii: promote or impair our ability to understand the experiences of others in their singularity; iv: participate in building inclusive or exclusive narrative in-betweens; v: cultivate or impede our perspective-awareness and vi: function as a form of ethical inquiry or dogmatism. Instead of binaries, these are differentiating continuums on which different narrative practices can be placed. They provide us with analytic tools to engage with the narrative dimension of human existence in all its complexity.

On February 06, the Narrative Research Special Interest Group of the American Educational Research Association:AERA awarded Professor Hanna Meretoja the Early Career Award for her 'substantive contributions and commitment to narrative research' and for 'her work with a large cohort of graduate students'. The award is designed to 'recognize a researcher’s outstanding accomplishment in the area of narrative research'.

|| April 06: 2018 || ά. The Humanion was first published on September 24, 2015 and has been run, since that day, on a complete voluntary basis without any 'formal' or 'constituted' manner or form and, it was run on as a Human Enterprise, which is an idea of Humanics, in which, ownership is replaced by belongingship and, thus, in a Humanical Society, no one owns anything but everyone belongs to the whole as the whole belongs to everyone lawfully and equally and, it neither believes in nor makes money but human utilities, needs, aspirations, creativity, imagination and dreams are served without money, where everyone works and creates for all others as all others create and work for all others, thus, bringing in meaning and purpose to life along with it come natural justice, equality and liberty, that establish a true civilisation within the Rule of Law. And in one word, this system of human affairs management is called, Humanics and a society that runs itself in humanics is called a humanical society. Today, we have begun the process of 'constituting' this Human Enterprise, which does not exist in the current system, but the next closest thing to it, that exists in the UK Law is Social Enterprise. Therefore, today, Friday, April 06, 2018, we are beginning Regine Humanics Foundation, that is the 'Agency', that will lead, run, manage and develop everything, that The Humanion has been trying to do.

Regine Humanics Foundation is established by the Thinker, Author, Poet, Novelist, Playwright, Editor of The Humanion, Festival Director of London Poetry Festival and a Humanicsxian: hu: maa: neek: tian: One, that believes in, lives and exists by Humanics, Mr Munayem Mayenin, of London, England, United Kingdom. Mr Mayenin says, ''Humanics is a vision; people, may, call it, utopia, we, call it our Humanicsovicsopia; Humanics. Humanics is our philosophy, our faith, our conviction, our resolution, our way of existing, thinking, being and doing: to seek and try to do so in the determination that all we must do and be is to exist to advance the human condition. People, readers and agencies and organisations, from all across England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and the whole of the United Kingdom and Australasia, Africa, Asia, Europe, North and South America, from all walks and strata of life, have supported our endeavours, supported The Humanion and The Humanion Team, who volunteered their time to run things, since the beginning of The Humanion and long before that, when other things, that are now part of The Foundation, were developing. Nothing has changed in terms of the nature and value of what we have been seeking to do.''

''But the founding of The Foundation brings it all in a solid foundation so that we can keep on building this 'vision' so that it keeps on going regardless of who come to take the vision-mission of The Foundation forward. The Foundation runs along with time and along with the flowing humanity. This is the dream, this is the vision, this the hope in founding this Foundation. And, in this, we hope and invite all our readers, supporters, well wishers and all agencies and organisations to support our endeavours to build something, a Human Enterprise, which we are in the process of registering as a Social Enterprise, as a Community Interest Company, working for the common good of the one and common humanity. No one makes or takes profit out of The Foundation, which now runs The Humanion and everything else, that is part of it. The Foundation, once registered, will have an Asset Lock, which means that in any event, should The Foundation dissolve itself, all its existing assets shall go to a similar Social Enterprise. Therefore, we invite everyone to support The Foundation, support The Humanion in whatever way they can. And, there are endless number of ways people and organisations can support The Foundation and The Humanion.'' ::: ω.
