Louisa Chang ‘Immediately I was to say there is no planet B- there is no other option than to work together. From the plays perspective and all who were involved - it shows how we can easily vilanise certain people - and there really is no need’ Connor McCausland ‘ The play explores the expectation of what an abuser looks like - it really explores and delves into this. Did the abuser express guilt because he felt guilty for his action or that he got caught?’ adding their fingerprints to #spottimespottime #artaunifyinglanguage #transcendingdifference #refugeeschooselove #conservationmeanslife #alllife #sittingequally #onespecies #oneplanet They are part of the cast of 20 Minutes of Action and have performances during the @edfringe @lionheart_theatre_ This unflinching case study scrutinizes one of the most pertinent conversations of our time: women's safety. Using the exact words of the victim, the perpetrator and their families, this play guides you through the most controversial sexual assault case in America. Found guilty of three felonies of sexual assault, an elite college sportsman is sentenced to just six months and released after three. The judge's justification: a long-term sentence would have a 'severe impact' on the perpetrator's future.

‘ Be kind to everyone’ Lois Hagerty seen here with her dad Kevin Hagerty 7th August 2022 Lois Hagerty from #sixtyfivepercenttheatre adds the last fingerprint on the #edfringe festivalto #SPOTtimespotTIME #artaunifyinglanguage #sittingequally #transcendingdifference #workingtogether #conservationmeanslife #oneplanet #refugeeschooselove #runningwithrefugees #fingerprintofunity #onespecies #oneplanet Lois is in a play called #aboutmoney - inspired by the McDonalds strikes of 2017/18Shaun is your average eighteen year old teenage boy. He likes music, video games and getting stoned. He’s also the sole carer to his eight year old sister, Sophie. But without enough money for child-care, and under pressure from a unsympathetic boss, he’s forced to make decisions that could have devastating consequences. Currently, 63,000 in Scotland are on zero hour contracts, struggling to get by on poverty wages. About Money is an important story to tell right now about young carers and the dangerous impact of precarious working conditions – on workers, and on the families they support.Theatre 503 6-8th September 2021WRITER #elizagearty DIRECTOR #alexkampfner PRODUCER Emily Hamilton and Jake Curran PipeSOUND DESIGNER #DuncanGallagherMOVEMENT DIRECTOR #seanholland edinburghfestival.datathistle.com/event/1865329-about-money/#glasgow #edinburgh #thearts #writers ...

5th August 2022 - First day of The Fringe Festival which will be live until the 24th August 2022.Shona McCarthy - Chief Executive - Edinburgh Festival Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society adding her #fingerprint to #SPOTtimespotTIME #artaunifyinglanguage #workingtogether #transcendingdifference #culturaldiversity #creativity #conservationmeanslife #equality #sittingequally #alllife‘ Today especially because it’s the Edinburgh Fringe re-emerging after 2-3 of just trauma and also to see the joy of the performing arts back on stages, streets and places- I guess for me it’s particularly poignant because the Edinburgh Fringe and The Edinburgh Festivals started after the 2nd World War. The original rational for the festivals was to salve for the people of Europe after the horrors of the 2nd World War. It feels today like we have come full circle and yet again, the arts are the thing that is the connecting space after a global pandemic and also Brexit and those things that have happened. I guess, as well, growing up in N. Ireland, the arts have always meant something more powerful to me than just an event or just entertainment; It was always the space for people to come together and have conversations that weren’t polarised, conversations where people had nuances and grey areas’ Shona McCarthy Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society Thank you Shona McCarthy - such an honour to meet such an inspiring woman. Over the next few days I shall post photos and quotes of the manny people we have met and talked to whilst promoting their wonderful art. Huge thanks to Shona McCarthy #shonamccarthy for her generosity on such a momentous day. #workingtogether #arts #edfringe #performingarts #chooselove #conservationmeanslife #runningwithrefugees #onespecies #we #theatre #streettheatre #creativity www.edfringe.com/ #edinburgh #lovethearts #love #arts ...

RELEASED TODAY!We are very pleased to announce that Dr Olivia Norfolk’s outstanding memoir, ‘Once Upon a Blue Moon’, is available to order now. Unfortunately, this is a posthumous release as Olivia sadly passed away in May of this year. Her book is a testament to her courage in the face of oblivion. You won’t want to miss this incredible journey through the mountains of St Catherine’s in Egypt. 'Between 2010 and 2015, Olivia carried out a Masters of Research and a Phd, based in the mountains of South Sinai in Egypt, where she looked at how traditional Bedouin farming practices affected wild flowers, pollinators and birds. Her work showed that sustainable farming is a possibility in these water limited regions. Olivia has written about her experiences of working in the Sinai mountains of St Catherine’s. Her work will give a glimpse of mountains and magic, madness and moonlight, leading you through valleys of adventure, peace and love... before tragedy strikes."Olivia's Story: www.youtube.com/watch?v=GUwXoG8ghJw&t=10s*Available to order now from all good bookshops. ...

Congratulations @lionesses on your win #Euro2022 #final #England v #Germany Tonight’s historic game at Wembley Stadium will hosted 87’000 people – a first for the Women’s Euro.History was made as England scored against Germany with a 2-1 win. I added a #fingerprint to #SPOTtimespotTIME to mark this historic moment. The moment was caught at my home on the tv sat alongside both my daughters. #diversity #creativity #stuffofdreams #equality #equalityinfootball @lionesses The England women's national football team has been governed by the Football Association (FA) since 1993, having been previously administered by the Women's Football Association (WFA). England played its first international match in November 1972 against Scotland. Although most national football teams represent a sovereign state, England is permitted by FIFA statutes, as a member of the United Kingdom's Home Nations, to maintain its own national side that competes in all major tournaments, with the exception of the Women's Olympic Football Tournament#artsocialdocument #SPOTtimespotTIME #artaunifyinglanguage #conservationmeanslife #workingtogether #refugeeschooselove #runningwithrefugees #acrossallborders #oneplanet #oneworld #onespecies #football #womensfootball #sport ...

On the 26th May 2022 I travelled with my lovely friends Sue and Nicola to #thebeardedtheory festivalin the hope of gathering #fingerprints from #pattismith& band. After circling the event, talking at the security gate, trying to pass messages through the layers of protection ( Which I totally understand 💚) I accepted that it wasn’t meant to be . I relaxed, and a band called #ferociousdog.uk came on the stage. The band generously signed calendars for all their supporters ( They have a huge following ) - I’m thrilled they also added their #fingerprints to sit alongside Michael and Emily Eavis ( music world ) and many more on this huge social art document #spottimespottime #artaunifyinglanguage #conservationmeanslife #alllife #sittingequally #workingtogether #transcendingdifference #refugeeschooselove #runningwithrefugees #fingerprintofunity #onespecies #one #workingtogether #acrossallindustries #we Ferocious Dog are a six-piece band who deal in a vibrant vein of Celtic-folk infused punk rock, comfortably slotting in between Billy Bragg and The Levellers. However, like The Levellers and New Model Army (also listed as an influence), Ferocious Dog have a broad spectrum of influences, tied together by the band’s left-leaning convictions and a shared desire to communicate through music.The band has headlined tours of the UK and Europe, festivals such as Bearded Theory, Alchemy, Deerstock, Farmer Phil's Festival, Splendour, Lowlands (Netherlands), Glastonbury Festival and Beautiful Days among many others.

Helen Schlesinger plays #JaneJacobs - Straight Line Crazy. Thank you Helen for adding your #fingerprint to #spottimespottime #artaunifyinglanguage #conservationmeanslife ‘ V is for victory - What I like about about the fingerprint is that it is another way of expressing.

Dominic held his phone as his mother telephoned to say the #Queen was about to be coming onto the #balcony. He conveyed to me that the barriers would come down and everyone could run onto the #Mall to run to see the #Queen - Dominic said ‘ I am here because I love the Royal Family’ #MaryHamilton is the red t- shirt which said ‘ Cheers to 70 yrs’ was so happy. I managed to get her fingerprint as the #Queen walked into the #balcony - she said ‘ This is the stuff of dreams’ 💚 I have included some other participants from that moment and a couple of a lovely family 💚❤️💚 Thank you all for adding your #fingerprints to #platinumjubilee #SPOTtimespotTIME #artaunifyinglanguage #conservationmeanslife #workingtogether #conservation #transcendingdifference #refugeeschooselove #fingerprintofunity #runningwithrefugees #onespecies #one #we #socialdocument #love #life 💚🌎🌎🌏#lovetheearth🌎 #loveplanetearth🌏 ...

On a day in #ukparliament where resignations have dominated the news because #trust has been lost in our parliamentary process, and with the appointment of #NadhimZahawi as chancellor I am reminded of the huge generosity of Thangam Debbonairewhen as my local #MP I was the artistinresidence for an unprecedented two weeks during the #meaningfulvote. #fingerprintofunity Along with many others The Chancellor added his fingerprint with #green ink. On the eve of 15th January ( the night of the meaningful vote) a baby called #Dylan added a #green handprint on behalf on #futuregenerations mentioned in #timjonze article he wrote about the residency in @guardian #davidlevene took photos of the #ukparliament fingerprint panel. Since then the #artwork has grown and transcends the #division always highlighting #human connection and #conservationmeanslife #transcendingdifference After a ‘quite by chance ‘ bump into, I met #AlisonReid #actor as she canvassed locally and after conversation we instinctively came up with #artaunifyinglanguage before a planned meet up with #kenloach -#BritishFilmDirector who launched the #art panel.

Ian Redmond Ian Redmondalready on #SPOTtimespotTIME with his #fingerprint Dan Richardson Dan Richardsonhas agreed to add his to sit alongside other @born Free foundation patrons Joanna LumleyBella Lack ( Wished I’d carried my ink pads! ) ‘‘Born Free Forever’ is based on a true story of a loving couple and a sweet lion cub named Elsa. In 1956 a game warden was sent to deal with a dangerous lion in Kenya. After shooting the lion and his aggressive female, he is distressed to find they have left behind three tiny cubs. And so begins the extraordinary story of George Adamson, his wife Joy, and their mission to raise and return the lion cub called Elsa to the wild. They would go on to become two of the greatest champions for lions.’ www.bornfree.org.uk/born-free-forever#artaunifyinglanguage #conservationmeanslife #workingtogether #transcendingdifference #refugeeschooselove #fingerprintofunity #onespecies #one #workingtogether #acrossallindustries#runningwithrefugees #conservation #bornfreeforever #virginiamckenna #billtravers #elsathelionessthatchangedtheworld ...

We elevate the voices and visibility of refugees and galvanise public support for agile community organisations providing vital support to refugees along migration routes globally.We are a lean, passionate team driving a fast-paced global movement across 15 countries. In just five years, we have reached one million refugees and raised tens of millions for nearly 150 organisations providing vital support at every stage along migration routes from Europe to the Middle East and along the US-Mexico border.We are powered by you and by our vision - a world that chooses love and justice every day, for everyone.The story behind Choose Love is well-publicised - Josie Naughton Lliana Bird, Dawn O'Porter, Dani Lawrence were horrified by the news stories of squalid conditions in the informal refugee camps in Calais, France. They set up a hashtag on social media, and after having raised £1,000, their fundraising rapidly grew to £56,000.Thousands of packages of aid started arriving every day — sleeping bags, tents, food. But when they got to Calais in August 2015, they were shocked to discover that there was no international charity coordinating efforts. So they got themselves a warehouse, recruited a network of volunteers on Facebook, and Help Calais was born: Choose Love’s first incarnation.Overnight, Choose Love say, they became the largest aid operation in northern France. ...

Olivia's work involved looking at how traditional Bedouin farming practices affected wild flowers, pollinators and birds. Olivia's work showed that sustainable farming is a possibility in these water limited regions and this was the inspiration for her book. *Available to order from all good book shops from August 1st. ...

When I started this artwork, SPOTtimespotTIME I was stood in #royalacademyofarts looking at The Rubens exhibition in 2015 . One fingerprint connected us all across time. Time, #theancestors and #legacy works as a whole and I knew in that moment, that a shift in our identity was occurring. We are all one species and uniquely individual. We share a home together and how we treat all life, is how we ultimately treat ourself. Creating a collective artwork and trusting the organic creative process is all about trust and instinct, - just like the planet - the artwork had to reflect this. #conservationmeanslife #artaunifyinglanguage Next year I collect the last physical fingerprint on the 30th March. Until then, moments like this, when I met Brian ( and Danielle #danielleclarkecreative )and we shared such a special moment meeting Amal #WalkWithAmal - Brian said he had a daughter called Emma #emmamanton who would love this artwork- ( One fingerprint away) ‘I just can’t stop crying, ..it’s just SO wonderful isn’t it ? - Well …I just hope it will make people reflect and consider their own consumption in this country and consider lots of other people from different countries who are struggling to survive with food and shelter, hopefully today will help make people more aware of the problem’ Brian ‘ In our many tiny differences, we are all the same’ Every atom of you, every atom of me’ Emma MantonI posted a couple of days ago about the incredible work Emma does for refugees and I met her whilst she was #belgradetheatre with Private Peaceful#walkwithamal is presently touring again. I urge you to go and feel the positive message she advocates for #humanity #children and all#refugees .#lovetheplanet #worktogether and trust #instinct and the #naturalway To welcome #refugees and #worktogether towards a healthier caring #planet is the only way. #trusteachother #nature #fingerprints #SPOTtimespotTIME #artaunifyinglanguage #conservationmeanslife #workingtogether #transcendingdifference #refugeeschooselove #fingerprintofunity #onespecies #one #we ...

Hummingsun 2011 -Elaine Robinson Happy Solstice Everyone.🔆hummingsun - 2011 ( Commission for North Bristol Trust) The Humming bird and also a Lyre. A celebration of creativity and nature. It’s all just a oneness.🧡 #love #respect #compassion #joy #light #summersolstice2022 #summersolstice #hummingbird #sun #spectrum #lyre The hummingbird represents an ancient symbol of joy and happiness. Its colorful appearance brings good luck and positive energy to our lives.Wisdom – Since lyres are commonly associated with Apollo, the god of music and prophecy, they have become symbols of moderation and wisdom to ancient Greeks. This strong association between Apollo and lyres stems from various myths that demonstrate his love for music. After his encounter with Hermes, Apollo went on to delight Zeus, the god of sky and thunder, with tunes that he played with his golden lyre.Harmony – Lyres are also believed to symbolize cosmic harmony. Apollo always carried his lyre with him, and it’s not just because he had the talent for it. Like in the story of how Hermes offered a lyre as a peace offering to him, this instrument became a powerful instrument of heavenly peace and social order. In addition, it’s possible that the calming sounds it produces automatically remind people of peaceful times.Union of Cosmic Forces – The lyre is also believed to symbolize the peaceful union between various cosmic forces. Since it usually has seven strings, each string was believed to symbolize one of the seven planets in our galaxy. Eventually, Timotheus of Miletus, a Greek musician and poet, added more strings to make it twelve, each corresponding to a certain Zodiac sign. ... See MoreSee Less

I initially traveled up to #belgradetheatre on the 21st May to meet #emmalmanton to document the organisation she set up ( Emma kindly introduced me to cast Private Peaceful too) www.runningwithrefugees.com/I first became aware of Emma and the incredible work and support she does from a ‘ quite by chance meeting’ with her dad when I went to meet #Amal #walkwithamal # #goodchancetheatre when he placed his #fingerprint on #SPOTtimespotTIME in Coventry in 2021. I invited her to be on this art social document to tell a story and also document an incredible achievement of awareness & #fundraising for #fefugees and also people who have become #displaced Emma kindly raised three fingers #tryzub, an ancient symbol of #Ukraine and its coat of arms. ‘ Every atom of you, every atom of me’ #emmalmanton PLEASE read more about Emma www.runningwithrefugees.com/ #runner #runningforrefugees #worldrefugeeday ‘I had no idea that when I agreed to join a friend on a short jog in 2014 that it would start a chain of events that would change my life. I was performing on stage in Stratford-upon-Avon when a colleague convinced me to join her on a two-mile run. I did the two miles but I had to walk twice and I was so ashamed. I thought I had to do something about it...By 2016, I was ready to try and run the London Marathon.Throughout the previous summer, I had been watching with horror as the media filled with pictures of children's bodies washed up on Greece beaches & , particularly, the now infamous image of 3 year old Aylan Kurdi. I knew it was an issue I could get behind.I spoke to a few friends in the Theatre world &, before long, my #marathon fundraising had spiralled into something much bigger. The Royal National Theatre donated the use of the #lytteltontheatre , 7 #playwrights in the UK wrote and donated material & 36 actors offered their services. #UNHCR made one piece, by Jenifer Toksvig, into this amazing film with Cate Blanchett, Peter Capaldi, Keira Knightley, Juliet Stevenson & others.On February 14th 2016, we staged 'Moving Stories' and raised over £32,000 for the #UN #refugee agency (UNHCR). In April, I ran in London & was bitten with the marathon bug.!’ #artaunifyinglanguage Thank you Emma Manton#artaunifyinglanguage #workingtogether #conservationmeanslife #transcendingdifference #fingerprintofunity ##onespecies #one #We #refugee-stories #refugeesupport ...

June 14th 2022 Place #brookhousedetentioncentre #Gatwick.Over the weekend protestors used their voice to represent the the people who were due to depart on the first deportation flight to Rwanda this evening and highlight their sense of injustice whilst trying to seek asylum and protection in the UK. I visited the site, - in hand a circle ⭕️ called ‘ transtulit’ hoping to gather comment from protestors and other witnesses. Rwanda deportation flight was thrown into doubt this evening after last-ditch ECHR intervention and subsequently cancelled. As I stood alongside two photographers Steve and Jamie, who were trying to photograph the single detainee leaving from this site, ( National Newspapers) security airport police anticipated more protestors. Instead the protestors were at MOD Boscombe Down trying to block the departure of the other 6 people due to leave on the flight to Rwanda. I had planned to lay 6 or 7 #fingerprints this evening representing the people leaving on the flight.Tonight the circle ‘ Transtulit’ will remain empty as #hope once again flies. #weareonespecies #love #SPOTtimespotTIME NO #fingerprints and yet still a document of todays events. @gatwickairport #brookhousedetentioncentre #SPOTtimespotTIME #artaunifyinglanguage #conservationmeanslife #workingtogether #transcendingdifference #refugeeschooselove #fingerprintofunity #onespecies #one #We #stoptheflights ...
