A busy week ahead to follow a busy weekend! (We love it, really!)
Medway’s Big Weekend is sadly, over, although the Medway Open Studios continues all through to next weekend. With such a variety of happenings involving so many of the coFWD community, there’ll be many a sleepy head occupying 161 today!
We’ll all be wide awake to welcome you on Wednesday though, for another of our popular ‘Jelly’ events. Come and join us for a spot of coworking: bounce a few ideas around with the creative minds you’ll meet here and Bring Forth Your Awesomeness! Or bring your lap top (but not the cat or the laundry pile) and settle down for uninterrupted (except for tea) Getting Your Stuff Done time. Sounds good, doesn’t it? All you need to do is sign up here to let us know you’re coming, so we can sort you out a mug
If gaming is where your head’s at, you can join us on Friday for the Retro sort, with our RetroSpect5 event. Raid your loft for your old consoles and bring’em along. Mario, Sonic et al, they’re all welcome for a solid session of fast and furious fun. Booking is essential and you can do so here.
coFWD is home to an eclectic mix of local creatives, many of whom were out and about over the Big Weekend. Louise and Ed from Tea Concerts were not only running the Homespun Festival along with other promoters, they also appeared at the Rochester LitFest Garden Party, Louise performing her own poetry, while Ed and our lovely Natasha of Creatabot brought along their CreataboX mini art vending machine – a huge hit with the party goers. The LitFest folk were of course in attendance at their own event, ably supported by Roy Smith, of Seasonally Effected fame (and more!) and Mdhamiri NKemi, one of our resident ridiculously talented film makers. Bunting maker extraordinaire, Sam Froudist, added the sparkle, festooning the eponymous garden with her wonderful creations. And we became the ‘green room’ for the day on Saturday, when the LitFest Guerilla Poets landed in town to warm up before hitting the high street to spread the words. Just an average week here, really …
