Time to start kicking of the spring and summer events. We start of with a special edition of Beats & Ord at Brunnen, as part of the International Science Festival in Gothenburg the 12th, 13th and 14th of May (next weekend).

On the Friday evening we open the exhibition with Beats & Afterword. Saturday morning we begin with buckets of coffee and breakbeats, Breakbeats for Breakfast. Sunday we finish of with Beats outside the Box.

And if that was not enough we also take part in the School Programme with a 90 minutes workshop-version of WordJam.

So we will keep ourselves busy 🙂

March and already April

 

CEPP

It has been a couple of hectic months and all of a sudden it was April. During February and March we hosted four Word Jams at Brunnen. We could have wished for more participants but other than that it were brilliant and creative events. At present we are evaluating and working with the reports for the funding we received.

Next time will be during the International Science Festival Gothenburg in May when we will guide six school-classes through the word-jam-jungle. That will be great fun!

During the festival we also host three events together with Brunnen all with a focus on hip hop and our exhibition Beats & Ord.

At the end of May we are of to Bergen, Norway, with Slot Car Music were we will participate in the conference Digital Technology in Arts Education.

Last but not least we have repainted Cat Eyed People’s Playground so that it is ready for take off in June.

Countdown WordJam Göteborg

NyWJFb

On Saturday, 11th March, WordJam Göteborg will kick of with two text-focused workshops. Followed by a sound-oriented workshop on Sunday, 12th of March. Once again we are happy to welcome Pelle Møller from Denmark and Per Olav “Skranglebein” Hoff Mydske from Norway as our coaches. Together with Geert “Langemand” Madsen they will guide the participants through the workflow and help them learn and develop creative writing skills and to add sound to the words (lyrics maybe).

WordJam Göteborg will take place at Brunnen, and the events are made possible with support from the City of Gothenburg and our collaboration with Brunnen.

Welcome!

Time for round two and WordJam Gothenburg on the 11 – 12th of March at Brunnen. During the Saturday we will host two text-workshops, WordJam Göteborg 1:1 Text and WordJam  Göteborg Text 1:2, and on the Sunday we will dive deeper into texts and also add sound and figure out how to combine your text with beats and music during WordJam Göteborg 2:1 Ljud.

We are happy to once again welcome Pelle Møller, Denmark, and Per “Skranglebein” Olav Hoff Mydske, Norway, as our text-coaches, and very thankful to the City of Gothenburg for making the three jams possible.

Sum-up WordJam Norden

First of all THANKS to all who participated and made the day so fun and educational at the same time. The plan for the day worked fine and we gained constructive feedback and creative inputs that will be put to use soon again.

Now we will evaluate project and sum up all that we have learned and the knowledge regarding methods that we have gained throughout the project. Hopefully all of this then, if our future funding applications comes through, will end in a larger Nordic project by the end of this year or the beginning of next. During 2017 we will stage three more WordJam, all at Brunnen in Gothenburg, and during the International Science Festival in Gothenburg we will host eight adjusted, in content and length, WordJams as part of the School programme.

Due to not knowing we have not been able to plan ahead and right now we are working hard with WordJam Norden that will take place on the 11 of February (next Saturday) at Brunnen close to Masthuggskajen.

With out promising anything we are planning three exhibitions at the Playground between May and October plus at spring opening in March/April. But as soon as everything is set a program will appear here and on Facebook.
