This website has been created by Anne Yarwood, resident in Ascot for over 50 years, to show how individuals CAN effect change… can DO something about their concerns, in an imaginative way.
This month’s theme across all 5 sections of the website is –
Make your Mark: Sound your Voice…through ART
Writing & Images waving at us across time and country; a certain determination to be seen and heard. Maybe hard for Readers to see the connections? …the connection is the KNOWING that we are ALL ONE.
BLOG: A Prayer for Mankind – photograph of a bone carving of deer’s head c 17,000 years ago. Found near Santander in Northern Spain and now housed in the Museum of Santander (photo ack). Beneath the image, a heart cry by a young aspiring actress about her role in the play ‘Take Two’.
Story: ‘Reincarnation’ – a reflection by local writer, Trisha Longworth, who says: – “Like a huge etheric Internet, we are all interconnected, to the past, to the present, to the future”
Gallery: Across Time and Places – exhibits art from 3 ‘voices’ – Iraqi painters – the first public display of paintings from Iraq at the turn of the 20th Century onwards; graciously offered to the website by emigres from Iraq, now living in other countries. James Bibey – a young artist with scant money and accommodation, who came several times at night to have fun with camera, a torch and a bucket of water! Brilliant way to see, afresh! He’s disappeared again. Ken Loach 2016 film ‘I, Daniel Blake’ – ‘‘with this movie, maybe his last, and maybe not – Ken Loach establishes himself, yet further as the John Bunyan of contemporary British cinema. The film intervenes in the messy ugly world of poverty with the secular intention of making us see that it is really happening and in a prosperous country too.” Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
Tales: From Holyhead to Hollywood: the journey of Graham Wyn Jones : Storyboard Artist – Speaking with Graham over many days, he led me through his journey. To me this story marched through the sequence of Joseph Campbell’s schema – The Hero’s Journey – the Tale found throughout myth and human history…unto STAR WARS.
Wake-Up: to the Marks & Sounds of the well-known and other beings – the hours spent by the Japanese Puffer fish creating its incredible nest; Banksy’s ‘Walled Off Hotel’ next to the Wall in Palestine and ‘Opera!’ – a collaborative Art Project between Royal Opera House, Victoria and Albert Museum and Kings College, London
