Sound Bite 2009

I had a great time at the 2009 Sound Bite Festival at St Donats Castle in the Vale of Glamorgan near Cardiff. I ran two full day photography workshops for Atlantic College students. We exhibited the work produced in the gallery. I took some images of some of the other artists and performers - poets, musicians and dancers - and made some new friends. The festival this year was smaller than the previous festival in 2007. In some ways it was a miracle that it was held at all - St Donats Arts Centre had been on the verge of possible closure and serious curtailment of their programme of events due to loss of Arts Council funding so it was good to see that this festival was able to take place and I was very pleased to be invited to take part.

I'm taking a few days break in the week after Easter - the last few weeks have been extremely pressured for one reason or another so I need to take a few days out to recharge and pick up some long overdue reading and correspondence.
