The Polyrhythm Team (- Alfie who was busy sorting snacks and me behind the camera)
Planning the future, what we want to accomplish and feeding in the community voice we have listened to over the last few months. A well represented bunch made up of 3 women, 3 male adults and 3 x 16 year old youth. What i would call a ' good mix ' that bring experience, knowledge and enthusiasm to the table.
If only half the plans go ahead then i will be really happy but I try not to do things by half so expect some epic stuff to happen over the next year !
The main changes will be seen in the shop where we expand opening hours, start to offer lessons and more workshops + we are working on setting up a School of Rock to run over the winter months.
The continuation of the Jam sessions we help run fortnightly in collaboration with Bodmaxx was a solid yes. The skills and equipment we bring to the rooms makes it a really enjoyable time for the participants and now with setting regular, planned sessions then it should attract more although with encouraging numbers that often hit 20 per session is a real good starting base.
The shared desire to introduce production on the Top Floor is quite exciting but might be funding dependant and as such, a few months away. We shared the belief that the benefit and use of being able to go into small production in the space would help strengthen the needs of the library members after listening to their feed-in.
We should be able to start over the next month with the planned delivery of events and workshops. Make sure you follow us on Facebook as not to miss out on updates.
