Programming basically done

December 24, 2008

It’s Christmas Eve and programming for Format is basically done. The venue is more or less full up, but if you’ve got things you want to do still get in touch and we’ll see if we can squeeze you in. Space for exhibits is pretty much non-existent but performances etc we can still fit in maybe.

This is also a good time for you to begin considering your New Year’s Resolutions. My resolution is to watch The Gods Must Be Crazy again. If anyone can help me achieve this goal I’d be most grateful.


Venue Set Up Mayhem

December 21, 2008

This blog is now fully operational, stand by for vital information. Simon’s gone overseas for two months, so the website itself probably won’t change much for a bit.

Christmas is but days a way, but we’ll still be meeting on Tuesday at the Exeter as per usual. If you’re bored, do come along. Paul and I are currently filling out development applications for the venue (145 Hindley Street – it’s a beautiful shithole) and trying to figure out how much of our grant funding we’ll have to sink into getting it useable and getting hold of the equipment everyone seems to want, namely working toilets, lights, projectors, some sort of air conditioning system and so on and so forth.

If you’re the kind of person who knows about setting up lights, obtaining PA and digital projectors etc etc, please do get in touch via cause we need all the help we can get.

Are you a street artist?

Well if you are, we want to hear from you! The plan is to put on a massive Street Art Festival simply named ST. If you’re keen to exhibit some of your work, or even just come and have a paint on the day, then send us an email.

Here’s a little story just to test what happens when there are three feeds in there.

I hope it all fits without mucking things up…

This is just me testing to see if Simon’s powerful design computer brain is working. If you’re bored, though, go visit:
By far the best bike blog I’ve ever encountered.
