Typical.Â I write a post about the Fierce Earth blog and what happens?Â A few hours later Helga Henry, managing director of Fierce Earth, uses that same blog to make a couple of key announcements – the biggest of which is that:
at present I think itâ€™s fair to say that there will not be a Fierce Festival in 2009 but that we will aim to produce 2-3 large scale ambitious public projects throughout â€˜09, one of which may be at the festival time. Our partners too, may still want to programme audacious and risky work in May and June, and we will certainly be working with them as usual to promote performances if they do.
Weâ€™d like to deliver a bigger, more ambitious programme, and it may take some time to sort that out.
So it’s not all bad and a reflection of their ambitions more than anything.Â It’s worth reading the whole post for more about the whys and wherefores but, as Helga says, watch the blog for developments.
There’s also information about Fierce’s Creative Learning work and the announcement that:
Weâ€™re considering announcing a call for projects and inviting ideas for innovative and exciting creative learning projects with people who would be willing to partner Fierce Earth
So if that sounds like something you’d be interested in then that’s another reason to watch that space.
