This weekend I am participating in Drafting, a 2-day drawing and performance event. There are a range of artists and curators involved, coming from all over the UK and at different stages of their artistic career. Over the past couple of weeks I have been helping with the organisation of the event, and have been in email contact with all the artists involved in Drafting. This morning was the first time that I had met many of the group, and having breakfast together was an ideal way to introduce ourselves.
|Discussions about the schedule|
|Alastair MacLennan sets up his space|
|Gillian Dyson prepares the gallery for her performance|
|Porcelain props in place for Denys Blacker's performance|
|Elements of green and orange in place for Debbie Guinnane's performance|
|Sally gathers traces from artist Rene Mcbrearty|
|Samples of dust collected by Sally Madge and her lint roller|
The atmosphere throughout the day has been one of encouragement, respect and support, and this continued in the evening. The audience were fantastic; attentive, quiet and engaged. Many stayed for the full 3 hours.

I'll be uploading photos of the performances soon.
