Isolation Station

Isolation Station starts tonight for a wknd of music supporting local artists like Fugitive Orchestra and Dutch Criminal Record as well as Raw Kids from Berlin (Who I can’t wait to hear live!)  In such strange times it’s great that music can still be promoted for us to listen to. Ella from ‘Missing’ Promotions really wanted to do something that involved a live stream that could showcase artists in a fun way and make us feel like we are having a cool wknd! I am totally up for that, are you? This means you can dance along in your kitchen and even get your friends to do the same at their house.

The Problem With Plastic

If you haven’t heard the various news stories about plastic waste in our seas, fish, and food then I can assure you: the news is upsetting. If like many of us, you are concerned about plastic waste (but don’t know what to do about it) then I have some exciting news for you: a team of local creatives has made something new, something that will let you directly influence how waste is dealt with in Portsmouth.

Hack Pompey

Hack Pompey, what is it? and how can you get involved? Well, it is one of the biggest hackathons on the south coast and offers an exciting weekend where all kinds of people join together for two days to come up with innovative ideas and plans to make something they have been wanting to for ages and never got around to! From fashion to game jams, product design to architecture, the choice is yours as to what you want to be involved in. It’s completely free which is an added bonus and this year’s theme is sustainability. Offering this theme gives people a chance to think about how the design or build they make today will have an impact on their environment or community tomorrow.

Kendal James

Travelling to Southsea for a day trip with my little boy, I ventured down to Hotwalls in Old Portsmouth and there, in the last studio was Kendal. A total whizz at Hama Beads, my son sat for an hour making his own Mario that he could take home and I never thought I would see Kendal again. Then we moved to Southsea and on visiting the Crafts in the Tower (back at the beginning of 2018) I saw Kendal again and discovered how much she offers to the creative scene in Southsea and Portsmouth.
