Skype Discussion

We have been asked by Pippa Koszerek if she can interview us as part of an profile on alternative art schools that she is writing for Artist’s Newsletter.  We are going to do this via Skype tomorrow morning at 11am.  If you would like to take part please email and we will send you Pippa’s Skype address.

Please take a look at Pippa’s article on art school occupation here and John’s open letter below for further context.

ok so we have started to add some text and previous journals on the site, go to the text tab and find a link to the first text – brecht’s ‘five difficulties’ and a space to discuss your thoughts on that up there.  also posts in the main thread of the blog will (hopefully) be categorised to make searching easier…
