Holloway-revisted

Bod Jamen curated the Holloway show, which put a formidable group of people together.  The big cats were on display. A good 150 turned up on a Tuesday. The highlight for me was meeting the two front line folk that ran the Ringcross center. True to the bone of what caring and help in the community should be about. Delores, a lovely 3 decades in the trenches of social care ran the entries and had invited a group of young people from the local teen homeless center. I had the privileged of showing them around, talking art and hopefully allowing them to feel welcome.

Susan Merrick, a proper artist and front line fighter was there in full force.

Politics aside, a good night with a good heart.

I do need to learn to look less spooky and weird in front of the camera…
