Slap Magazine: Issue 27 June 2013
As you can see from this months front cover image our thoughts here at SLAP are turning toward the festival season. Despite the kind invite, we missed out on Lechfest due to deadlining duties. The reports I heard were that it was superb, helped on by the bank holiday weather no doubt which only made me even more jealous. Ah well, by the time you read this we will be at Wychwood, so not all bad, unless in rains of course!
In this issue we look at a few ‘family’ festivals such as Droitwich Festival and Youthcom Minifest showing once again the abundance of energy and talent their is around along with some dedicated local organisers. The Blue Dragon III Beer & Music Festival was a huge success too raising much needed funds in their quest to bring our football team back home.
We take a look at some student art exhibitions as well as our own Arts Workshop and Boars Head Gallery of course. The collaboration between PITT Projects and Juneau projects with ‘I Am The Warrior’ for the Worcester Open is well worth checking out. As too is Movement on Platform 2 at Foregate Street station with Juneau Projects - Blackbird in Infospace who launched an album of five new songs made in response to the city of Worcester. It’s uniquely accessible by pen drive throughout June at places like The Hive, The Guildhall, Rise Records, The Art Gallery and of course Movement. More on that next month me thinks...
