366 Days of Kindness at Penrith Old Fire Station

Forwarded email from Eden Arts, 20th March at the Old Fire Station, Penrith
View this email in your browser

 

Next up at the Old Fire Station  |  366 Days of KindnessSome fab performance and an artists conversation event (see below). And a Bar. And MusicWe’re extremely pleased to be bringing the White Rabbit/Birmingham Rep show 366 Days of Kindness to Penrith on 20 March.366 Days Of Kindness is written and performed by Bernadette Russell and Gareth Brierley of White Rabbit, and was created in response to the riots of August 2011, after which Artistic Director Bernadette committed to be kind to a stranger every single day for a year. This multi-media show tells the heartbreaking, surprising and challenging stories of that year, which began with burning buildings and ended with the flame of the Olympic torch, against a global backdrop of social unrest and economic crisis. Part storytelling, part stand-up, part live documentary, featuring a dinner party with surprise guests including the Dalai Lama, Liam Neeson and Princess Diana, this show attempts to answer the question: is it possible to change the world just by being kind?

Bernadette says of the project: “After the year was up, I realised that it was the best thing I had ever done, so I carried on! And I still do it every day.” She was also invited onto Radio 4’s Saturday Live to talk about her experiences, where Billy Bragg taught her the chords to “Milkman of Human Kindness” to use in the show.

The show has already had sell out audiences in its recent intensive tour of the U.K and U.S.

A book inspired by the project is published by Lewes Ivy Press (UK) and Kane Miller (US) called “Do Nice Be Kind Spread Happy” it’s a children’s activity book of kindnesses, aimed at 8+.

Another event not to be missed!

If you can’t make it along to workshop then why not create artworks at home or with your craft, school or friends group.

Participants can use any technique to create their woollen artworks but are encouraged to use ‘real’ wool, ideally 100% natural. Wool is a remarkable fibre, which is able to withstand the elements! Previous creations have included owls, bats, insects, flowers and birds and people of any skill level can get involved.

Full details, including the entry form and a selection of free patterns are available on the project website HERE 

The exhibition is non-selective and the deadline for entries is 4th April 2014. The Exhibition will run from 12th April – 1st September 2014 at Sizergh, Nr Kendal – visit their website HERE for venue details.
