After my crazy blogging in December I’ve been a bit lax updating the Blog in 2012. The early part of January was a time of organisation and focusing on plans for the year ahead as well as getting to grips with some exciting new projects. One of these projects has been the design of a new website for Spirit of the Carnival, a Norwich based community arts initiative. This is really a project close to my heart as I first met Pat Howe, who runs Spirit of Carnival with Linda Blakeway, back in 1996 where we were both on a course about setting up your own business. Our paths have crossed several times since then, and for the past three years Geoff and I have photogrpahed their community carnival in July on the Friday before the Lord Mayor’s procession. This year the theme of the event was Friday Gras and featured schools and childrens groups from across Norfolk. Here is a taster of the fabulously colouful evening – more from this and the 2009 and 2010 event will be on the website once it is launched.
