There hasn’t been a reflective practice space in Voyage With Me, so we created one which met last week to think about how the project has been going. As a result we decided to tweak it a bit.
We have enough participants now, and the group is gradually becoming more cohesive. VWM is essentially a group experience, and feeling safe in the group enables people to take creative and personal risks. So we are closing the group to new members from our next meeting on 9th September instead of keeping it open until Christmas.
There was a feeling that it would be good to run blocks of sessions at the Sainsbury Centre and Sweet Arts, so that people can focus more consistently on getting to know the Sainsbury Centre and the collections, and then on making things in response. The Autumn sessions now give us a run of meetings at the Sainsbury Centre until the end of October, followed by making sessions at Sweet Arts or in community centres.
I have updated the timetable to show the changes.
