Mayhem and Miscreance afoot

Oxheys artists’ planning meeting

At Oxheys we don’t do bored and stuffy – our planning meeting yesterday took place on the Flag Market outside the Harris Museum, in glorious sunshine with elderflower and dandelion & burdock juice aplenty. We discussed the outcomes of the recent Making A Mark event, assessed what had worked well and where improvements could be made. We also came up with a whole raft of mad ideas for a future intervention event – more on that in due course!

Also up for discussion was our recent successful bid for Lancashire Encounter 2018 and for that, we’ll need help from every artist, performer or musician based in Lancashire. Details will follow but essentially we’ll just need you to let us know who you are, where you’re based and what you do! Simples. You’ll then become part of our art map of Lancashire.

The next post will include a form to complete and submit….
