Only a week and a bit to go before our skills exchange DIY arts festival events…getting a wee bit nervous. Always do. How many people are going to turn up? Is anyone going to turn up? It’s especially difficult when you’re hosting events in a large venue like the Savoy Theatre. In june our events were deliberately held in small venues across the city. This time it’s different. Our clubnight can hold 900, our gig and film night 400 and our cabaret 200. Is there anyone interested enough? Is it worth it? How long can you go on sitting on the edge of your seat with racked nerves and nails bitten to the quick thinking, thinking, thinking.
But one mustn’t forget that failure can only truly happen if you try. And try we must. Must go on. Keep producing, making, creating space so that new things can be born. Its up to all of us to make it happen in whatever way we can, wherever we are and in whatever we do…keep looking, searching for that chink of light that makes all the difference.
Hope you can all make it. Tell all your mates, family, whoever…send it out on your social network pages…we must not forget that mutantspace.com is a co – operative of people who want to make things happen because we can. That is enough to make all the difference in a world gone increasingly generic. In a world that squeezes time out of everything, makes us run faster, talk quicker. In a society that tries to think for us, do what’s best for us, wrestles decisions out of our hands and at every opportunity tries to commodify everything we do for a quick buck
