BSK and the Brady Centre

June 23, 2011

Today I went to a meeting with Shamim and Bishwo Shahitto Kendro (BSK) at the Brady Centre, an East End arts centre through which the slice passes. It was very exciting – a grassroots group from the Bangladeshi diaspora engaged with various art forms. They’re going to work with Shamim and a visual artist called Zaman to explore Shamim’s idea of parents telling their children stories. There were lots of ideas and a great variety of different skills in the room – music, art, drama… We probably could have come up with a whole new slice project. I hope we’ll continue to work with BSK when we come to develop the outreach aspects of the projec.

But first things first. We’re meeting again this Sunday to start work…

Here are a couple of photos of the group, plus the Brady Centre. Oh and there was a gorgeous evening light over the eastern end of the slice, so I’m sharing a picture of that as well.
