This weekend Uncle Tacko and Prom-Prom attended this year’s NASA conference at the Lanternhouse in Ulverston…here’s what he got up to!
Uncle tackled 12 volt electrickery and Meyerholdian Biomechanics in workshops, as well as creating mayhem in the kitchen and a festival of Dad-dancing until 3AM. The fleas had their second outing, to great acclaim from the assembled gathering of street artists (picture attached) – one of the hardest of all audiences to please! The whole event was a great success and featured masterclasses, lectures and workshops from leading practitioners of outdoor arts in Britain.
Uncle Tacko! chaired the NASA AGM & members meeting in his capacity as an elected steering group member: decisions were taken about the range of projects to be undertaken during the next year of the organisation’s operation – supporting and promoting the development of British street arts. Uncle! Has been asked to pursue the possibilities of a national street arts archive, which will involve him working on developing potential plans for a physical and digital repository for materials. NASA now boasts over 60 members and its influence as an advocate and lobbying group for the sector is growing as the industry develops.
