This month has been a whirlwind of activity. Lots of meetings with exciting opportunities to be had, storytelling workshops in schools to celebrate World Book Day, an Arctic blast to disrupt working patterns, and then a funding rejection. Just when I thought I could banish those winter blues!
This project has been developing for the last few years. A flight of fancy adventure using circus and storytelling. A research and development grant back in 2021 led to an exploration of ideas and excitement. However, after much hair pulling and through gritted teeth, we have made the decision to stop trying to follow our dream on this project. Another rejected funding bid is a sign for us to stop pursuing this adventure. But out of it, we have developed a cracking story, so watch out for “The Little Old Lady Who…” perhaps we haven’t thrown the towel in just yet?
