Sam Kerr, So It Begins, 2017, 10.51 minutes.

Sam Kerr is a performer with a multi-layered and diverse repertoire of works. So It Begins, is an intimate work which focusses on Sam’s memories before, during, and immediately after an accident which saw Sam acquire a disability and his father pass away.

Sam’s haunting narration is the focus of this piece, punctured only by lingering smoke and visuals to conclude his story.

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.

The mixed reality project has helped me explore many past memories of the most significant part of my life.

Reliving the experience through story telling with Lincoln has helped me find some healing around the mixed feelings that run through my heart, body and mind.

The script was somewhat hard to piece together but with the help of it started to explode out of my head onto the paper.

I am really looking forward to putting it all together.
