Preliminary date for the first of my Chinwag meetings at the Junction is 24th October before Hollie McNish’s Poets vs Rappers event. Get in touch if you’d like to come to the salon and if you have something you’d like to share.
Other good things happening at the Junction in October:
Next Wednesday is the second Only the Lonely. Only the Lonely is an ongoing series of events organised by Claire Summerfield. They’re opportunities “for artists, producers and makers to come and talk about what they do and why they do it; a space to pause, reflect, and connect and maybe, just maybe, be challenged a little.”
I went along to the first Only the Lonely event at SAMPLED festival in May. It was rather special. Michael Pinchbeck wrote about it here http://www.junction.co.uk/news/5630.
This one takes on David Gale’s ‘Peachy Coochy’ format. Five presenters will discuss their chosen topics over a powerpoint presentation of 20 slides each shown for 20 seconds. I reckon it’s going to be an interesting evening and it’s only £3 to get in – http://www.junction.co.uk/artist/5802.
Something called Sunday Assembly is happening on the 27th. It’s billed as a secular alternative to religious Sunday gatherings, ‘a godless congregation that meets to hear great talks, sing songs and generally celebrate the wonder of life’.

Last but not least Bryony Kimmings’ Credible Likeable Superstar Role Model is on the 30th.
