It’s cold, it’s getting darker and we need to make it easier to work together on the things that matter, removing some of the more common barriers to collaboration that you see in this city.
C4CC removed many barriers. We worked hard to maintain that ethos of openness in the face of pressure from institutions who had other expectations of how collaboration works. It doesn’t just happen on its own, but you can’t make it happen either.
So here I am, trudging along on a frozen football field having a bit of a think.
Bonus Link! : I’m making a Journal of Creative Collaboration via Patreon – come see!
I went to the London Bloggers Meetup last night for the first time in a while. It was on video-blogging and as well as hearing from and meeting some interesting people, it helped me get a few ideas about my own work slotted into place. In particular it inspired me to do more of the journaling type, this is me, here and now and what I think podcast/vlog. The first one is in the works (I went for a walk and talked into the camera, that’s my style) – I’m going to try to cut it down to something watchable today and to make it a regular feature of my Steemit output. You can thank/blame Andy Bargery who runs LBM.
I went out and realised there was far more I wanted to say than could be squeezed into a three or four minute video. So I’ve still got a couple more of these in the can and I’ll work out how to release them without overwhelming you!
I realised today how awkward it feels to me to talk about inspiration – I’m always flattered and pleased when people say I’ve inspired them, but I don’t want to admit it works the other way too.
Those of you who’ve only seen me up against my living room wall with a ukulele in my hand will be gratified to see that I can move about and that I’m lucky enough to live in a lovely place (right next to the municipal tip recycling facility).
Sorry about the wind (meteorological not flatulent)
