Beautiful day. Feeling positive. The Trash Culture Revue is starting to come into focus. It came on like a freight train and has already left behind so many ideas. And we haven’t even begun. The response has been fantastic – we’ve got so many different acts, performers, ideas, workshops, thoughts, experiments. Most of the events will be free with all the production, marketing and pr being done for nothing, nada. It will be festival run on gift economy principles, on mutantspace.com principles.
I love that. I love knowing that we can change things, systems, can do things differently, if we care enough to do them. To do something for the love and need and care and want and desire. To do something a little different, to say something a little different, to be a little different. A fresh breeze. A new angle, hue, tint, reflection. People always invest more of themselves into change. In this case the system of production. Once money is left out of the equation then you need a different set of tools for the negotiation, management and production of the event. You need to concentrate on time, skills, thought, ingenuity, etc. By negating the power of money you need to set up an alternative system for achieving your goals. We rely too much on the power of money to solve all our problems. We’ve got to the stage where we think that money can solve all our problems.
That’s what makes The Trash Culture Revue so refreshing. We have made a point of revealing the lie that ‘money solves all problems’ and have decided to try an alternative means of problem solving. Rather than use money we are using our limitations to our own best advantage, giving ourselves time to think, time to create a space in flux, space to breathe, space for growth, space for play. To all of you that are involved thank you. To all of you that will be around be sure tyo come to as many of the events as you can. To those of you just looking in, keep an eye out and remember this Revue can always go touring so if you fancy having it in your area let us know and we’ll all go travelling.
Just to finish, we’re still looking for submissions for our short film competition and our story slam. So if you fancy yourself for one or the other, or both download a form here and get involved. If you’d like to put up posters, do the door, generally help out let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Perhaps you’d cook food for performers…write a daily blog on all the events….who knows, anything….the more people get involved the better. Let us know. Details on times, venues, dates, etc will be going up in the next few weeks. You can also keep up to date on our facebook page
