Artist Talk – Powerpoint Presentation

In case you have missed any of the artist talks that Debbie and Sara have presented over the course of their project so far, don’t fear! I have included all of the most interesting snippets below for you to have a listen to! These have been taken from a longer audio recording made at the Engine Room in Bridgwater, by Richard Tomlinson, for their artist talk to Somerset Film’s Creative Network, as part of the Ignite Somerset project.( This talk was also repeated in part, at the Nissen Hut on Cherry Hayes Farm, as part of the BHAAM ( supported event last week. I have also included a few images for you to look at while you listen, these relate to the content of each clip. Clip 1 – Initial ideas, collaborating, working on the farm
