Today’s Roundup won’t be mentioning GameCity (because we covered it last week) nor Christmas (nuff said). It will however be drawing your attention to:
Fancy writing about art or culture? We are always interested in potential new bloggers, drop a line to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are an artist or running a creative business and you would like to be a Guest Blogger over a fortnight, drop us a line to the same address. If you fancy reviewing theatre or comedy for the great local publication LeftLion, have a look at their job description. Note that you will be paid the same as for writing for Creative Nottingham.
If you think you will be inspired by the technology at GameCity (oops) and you want to explore your inner electronic designer first, get down to Hackspace on Saturday for the Arduino (no, I don’t either) Boot Camp. To cover the costs, the tickets are £43.05, and you will need your own laptop.
If the virtual reality of GameCity (but note, no Father Christmas reference) is not to your taste, how about surrealism? NTU’s Professor Lei Cox has assembled the fruit of 26 years of investigation into achieving surrealism in a free exhibition at the Bonnington Gallery in town. The exhibition entitled Twenty-six years later (a journey into fiction and back again) runs until 11 November and new photographs, new video installations and some retrospective video and photography pieces.
Finally, does your auntie live in Erewash? If so, that might be enough to get you priority treatment when you apply for (small) funding as part of the Art in Empty Shop Scheme for Long Eaton and Ilkeston, the rEive initiative. More details from Creative Greenhouse, with contacts and application information – deadline 4 November.
Editor: one out of two isn’t very good. New blogger next week, please.
