Great band, gorgeous food called nibbles, a lovely welcome from Karen, and not an Asian in sight in Banglatown’s Whitechapel Ideas Store. Twas the launch of an art and poetry evening celebrating the journey of getting old. (Tell me abah’ i’) Bit of ‘love them old darlings going on’ but that’s usual when fifty somethings promote the value of seventy-five year olds. Neslen in Walthamstow did an exhibition with her plaster sculptures entitled “Waiting” and that included a very life-like sitting senior in the doorway.
Tonight we had two artists displaying their waxy humans.
A truly generous spirit pervaded. There was some wallpaper worth admiring so we await how that gets onto the market, all to do with seniors in care homes and their dignity.
