Well, I never did get to do my daily blog through the Trash Culture Revue (I got as far as Friday). It was all too much to expect of myself; too much partying, long nights, no sleep and work to be done every day. I had a blast and I hope all of those who got to one of the twenty trash culture events did too. Most of all I hope the performers enjoyed themselves. It’s such an important part of any event that the performers, who give so much of themselves, enjoy themselves, get a chance to breathe.
It’s now Wednesday but I’m still shattered. Seems like weeks ago that we started when in fact it was only this time last week that we held our first event, Bloomspace. I’m still spaced and out of whack.
I’m picking up the photos of the entire event tomorrow and for that I have Carolyn Collier and Isabella to especially thank. The sheer amount of work they had to put in, for nothing, to capture all the events, taking photos, uploading them, editing them and so on will give us a lasting record of the first Trash Culture Revue. Thank you both so much and I hope someday I can repay you for the work you did.
I don’t have much energy to write any more but I would like to finish off by saying a big, huge, warm thanks to everyone for getting involved and making it happen – these things DO NOT EVER happen on their own. I was going to attempt to name every single person involved but the list would be too long, too extensive and I’d probably forget someone so I’ve chickened out with a general thanks.
We worked on a zero budget and put on 20 great events. It needed all sorts of people with all sorts of skill sets to realise each event. After the success of this Trash Culture Revue we will definitely be hosting another, in Cork, later in the year. At the moment it’s looking like November. Always a good time of the year to cheer people up. So on that note, again, thanks to everyone and in the next week I hope to have all the photos uploaded to our Flickr channel, a ten minute video from Friday night and all the entries from our Mutant Shorts Film Competition uploaded into our Vimeo channel.
