November & December

You can see what's coming up across our projects over the next couple of months here...

        Throughout this strange year, Unbound has found innovative ways to connect and create together. We moved online in the middle of March due to Covid-19. Initially, Zoom meetings and Basecamp threads didn’t seem to be the natural habitat for a community that normally gathers to eat, make, share and learn together weekly. However, the social connections and on-going solidarity of Unbound has found new manifestations in online form. Conversations, connections and creative challenges carry on throughout the week. Relating online seems to have allowed disruptions in power dynamics as we have come together in a less-hosted space during a time of collective adversity. We are currently imagining exciting new ways of working together face-to-face again, taking forward all of this learning. For more insight into our Unbound community, check out the latest Streetsigns podcast which features lots of voices from our community If you or someone you know is interested in coming along to Unbound (6.30 – 8pm on Tuesday nights) then please contact admin@voxliminis.co.uk or call us on 07526 297973    

A GIANT ON THE BRIDGE

A Giant on the Bridge’ is a live show (a ‘gig with stories’) that has been developed as part of the ‘Distant Voices: Coming Home’ project, and is now awaiting a future time when it can be given a live performance.

The final development, rehearsal and performance of the show was supposed to happen in April 2020, and therefore was made impossible by the Covid-19 outbreak. The musicians decided that they still wanted to make a version of the show under lockdown conditions. So, separated into their respective houses, and only communicating virtually, they created a film of a kind of ‘read-through’ of the script of ‘Giant’ featuring solo acoustic performances of the songs. Click here to view a taster of that film. We’re hoping it ignites peoples interest enough to keep them patient as we wait for the time when ‘A Giant on the Bridge’ will finally come to life properly on stage.

   
 

IN TUNE AT HMP PERTH

In January, In Tune began at HMP Perth for the very first time! With Donna and Lucy making music with Dads and families once a week. Currently our In Tune workshops are on hold due to Covid-19 Restrictions but we are really looking forward to being able to make music together again before too long. It’s always great to hear what it has meant to the Dads who have taken part. One of the Dads, who took part in both the song writing sessions we ran in HMP Greenock last year, let us know what his daughter thought of his last song: “My daughter hasn’t stopped playing the last one so hopefully this one’s the same.  She’ll love it.  I know my wee lassie loves having the last song because it's from me, she really gets it, and I really appreciate coming to this and doing it.  Thanks for having me here again.  It’s just so different and I love what you get us doing.  I’d do this every day of the week, every week."       The KIN Collective have been developing a zine with the brilliant Beth Shapeero. Keep your eyes peeled for more news on this soon!   If you or someone you know might be interested in joining this project, please contact project co-ordinator Rosie on rosie@voxliminis.co.uk, 07903 415 037.
