Yesterday, Nigel and I met up with some of our European Limes partners. It was the first time I had met any of them and my first observation was just how amazingly they speak English. We are going to be developing projects with NIGRUM PULLUM and Park Matilo, Netherlands who are on the Lower German Limes, and Peutinger Gymnasium, Ellwangen, part of the Welterbe Limes. There was a real enthusiasm for the project which was fantastic! We now need to start on the details...........
Today I should have been delivering my first workshop at Tullie House but the groups we had hoped to work with haven’t materialised which was disappointing. They are frantically trying to find an alternative - the refugees currently have other priorities, like learning language and employability skills and many people haven’t returned to the museum since Covid.
Anyway, I have made good use of the time and completed my design for our project logo. It has been time consuming as I have explored different designs. Here we have Hadrian’s Wall complete with Frontier Voices between the crenellations - because these artworks are all part of past and present people’s stories.
