Today I finished my Story Board, it’s called ‘My Reality’ and we will film it soon. I learnt how to post my work on Facebook. From now on I will do one each week. I drove around the building filming and testing how to use the camera and practiced my performance with it on my chair.
I am very happy because DADAA came to visit me at home this morning. I showed them my bedroom the kitchen and the loungeroom. I did my acting and they took photos so they can come back and make a movie. I make my own movie it’s called “My Reality”
To day I did a warm up exercises with music and I went through my lines when I am moving around the room.
I also brought photos of me when I was a child. I use my wheel chair for action when I go through my lines
I also did the virtual reality today to see my photos of me when I was child.
I talked about a story from my photos of me and my family that I bring into virtual reality
It’s easier for me to go through my lines in the amazing new studio!

It was my own world, I was in space, floating.
I am here.
The painting felt like it was near my eyes
My movement is getting better at DADAA

Julia Hales developed a goal setting workshop for MIXED REALITY artists and delivered it last week…
For my Sync Leadership I always want to help the other young artists to follow their dreams.
I have learnt to do goal setting with MIXED REALITY artists to map out their goals.
First I start by telling them my story about how I worked at achieving my goals.
I also ask them to DREAM BIG and dreaming big means you push yourself to achieve your dreams and to see your self in the future and to keep working in the future.
I also learnt to give them some exercises to help them to map out their goals on their own and in groups. I show them my example of setting my goals to follow as well.
We all worked together in groups over three days to set some new skills to get to their big dream.
The goal setting workshop went every well and everyone in the workshop is very happy and very excited that the workshop had helped them a lot to keep working on their big dreams.
I would like to keep doing more goals setting with other people and also people with Down Syndrome as well.
I worked with Danny, Lauren, Tina, Pat, Hugo, Verity, Cameron, Aidan and Sam.

I am currently working intensely with five artists from the Mixed Reality project. Patrick Carter, Tina Fielding, Lauren Marchbank, Danny Tuckey and Julia Hales.
Each artist has their own creative agenda and drive and my role as a facilitator is to assist each individual to realise their projects.
With an arts practice based in movement and film I am currently working on developing live dance and theatre performance outcomes with each person. Themes that have emerged throughout the workshopping process have been identity, culture and reality. What is real for you? What is your everyday reality? The work we have been creating is personal and revealing and has proved to be both challenging and rewarding for the artists and I.
Once we have formed the live performance material we will then move into working with technology and virtual reality. We will be looking at how each personal reality then manifests in an unnatural virtual world. This experimentation will then be incorporated with the live performance for some of the artists.

I’ve been doing some work.
I started talking about my home at Rocky Bay.
Talked about my bed.
My lounge rooom.
I was doing everything in those rooms.
I talked about how I moved around the rooms.
My everyday movement came out of this process.
I now move around this space in the same way I move around my house.
I can’t believe what I’m doing!
Warm up each week. Move around space. Clap and go through movements.
