Release that creativity

Caring Together staff and members have been attending the Connect and Create sessions run by Arts & Minds for a number of months now. The idea is for Arts & Minds members to get together, find out what’s going on, to discuss future plans, and to be a bit creative. Every month they ask you to bring something that you may wish to share:

When: 1st Monday of the month 2 – 4 pm

Matt Anderson Quartet

New music from the Matt Anderson Quartet album ‘Rambling’.

London-based saxophonist and award-winning composer Matt Anderson presents a new quartet touring their new release, ‘Rambling,’ on Jellymould Jazz. The band seeks to bring together seemingly distinct musical influences, for example exploring the common ground between the folk music reminiscent of Matt’s rural upbringing in the North Yorkshire Moors, the bluesy, country strains of Bill Frisell and Scandinavian jazz, culminating in a lyrical and honest Afro-Celtic sound world.


Sounds of the sixties and seventies

The Wednesday Group will be celebrating World Storytelling Day on 

Wednesday 20th March


Little London Community Centre

(everyone has a story, what’s yours?)

World Storytelling Day is a global celebration of the art of oral Storytelling It is celebrated every year on the March Equinox, on (or near) March 20. On World Storytelling Day, as many people as possible tell and listen to stories in as many languages and at as many places as possible, during the same day and night. Participants tell each other about their events in order to share stories and inspiration, to learn from each other and create International contacts.

The significance in the event lies in the fact that it is the first global celebration of storytelling of its kind, and has been important in forging links between storytellers often working far apart from each other. It has also been significant in drawing public and media attention to storytelling as an artform.
