We have been putting out a launch proposal to artists all around Reading
and the UK. You may have noticed that Remix Reading was even on Boing
Boing the other day
Anyway, I have attached the proposal below so please have a look and
send us your suggestions.
Remix Reading (www.remixreading.org – the site is much quicker now) is
putting on a eclectic launch event on 1st March in South Street arts
centre, which will involve a press conference, an art exhibition,
workshops, open recording sessions, an open mic stage, poetry readings,
film showings and some big acts to finish off the night. But we need you
to make this one-off evening even better.
Organising the event is a volunteer effort, and we have plenty of gaps
that can be filled by your great ideas. We'll have 1hr 30mins after the
press conference (i.e. from 5.30pm-7pm) for workshops, demonstrations,
live art happenings, open recording and anything else you can think of.
We are also looking for artists to provide their work on the night. If
you'd like to have your painting exhibited, your film screened, to perform
your music or recite a poem or story at a unique community event, this
chance. Just add your work to the Remix Reading web site before the night,
and send us an email with your phone number offering your work. If it's an
image make sure you have an original copy that can be displayed (we might
be able to print it for you if need be), and if it's a video please
include details of the length and format.
You can see what we have planned for the evening so far, including ideas
for the workshop space, on this page:
We look forward to hearing from you/seeing you perform,

P.S. Please forward this email onto anyone else who might be interested.
