What Are they saying about the 8th Mrs Brown?

This piece was inspired by the fictional TV character Mrs Brown, which is set in Finglas, in North Dublin. A Finglas resident wonders what the people there think of the 8th amendment to the Irish constitution (which gives equal right to life to the foetus as to the pregnant woman), which is the subject of a referendum on 25th May. Taking a trip down memory lane and reviewing the hardships that putting the foetal hearbeat ahead of women’s health caused in Finglas (and all over Ireland). This audio was originally developed for a Speaking of IMELDA performance in Ireland in 2016.

The referendum to repeal the 8th Amendment to the Irish constitution and clear the way for permitting abortion up to 12 weeks takes place on 25th May. For more information, see the attached links

Talking Shop: Is Camden one of the best places to live in the country?

In a recent survey, Camden was one of three London boroughs named as one of the best places to live in the country. The study looked at areas across England and ranked them on factors such as economic growth, sustainability and happiness. In this first episode of Talking Shop, Marian, Freddy and Violet discuss whether they agree with the findings.

Talking Shop is a new show from Camden Community Radio which sees members of the station looking at a news story from a local perspective.

Package by Freddy Chick, Marian Larragy and Violet Macdonald.

Sally Buchan has an installation this week at the Flux Exhibtion

Camden-based multi-media artist Sally Buchanan doesn’t necessarily know what her projects are going to be about, but always knows that they are going to happen. Not surprising then that her contribution to the FLUX Exhibition – this week in the Parade Ground of Chelsea College of the Arts – is called ‘The Inevitable Installation’. Sally talked to Camden Community Radio while she was still on a high from the (not quite finished) work on her sculpture which she hopes will draw people into a space that suggests another world, another dimension. Consisting of ten cubes, each a different colour and constructed with scaffolding and organza that people can walk through or view from outside, the installation plays with shape and colour as overlaps transpose colours and convey different hues. On Monday and Tuesday ‘The Inevitable Installation’ will be assembled (and filmed with a time lapse camera) in situ.

Entry is FREE, Gates open each day at 11am. Chelsea College is next to Tate Britain at 16 John Islip Street, SW1 4UJ.
Bus 88, Pimlico tube station or River bus to Tate Britain.
