A beautiful Scottish mixed media arts production combining poetry, dance, song, film, art as research, the outdoors as art and experiential learning.
A whole bunch of experiential learners exploring and expressing their experience of life through art, in this case Funk. We learn from experience in the doing and the senses and art is the embodiment of that experience.

This BBC Radio 4 series follows the stories of 18 year old artists.
I lived in Toxteth, Liverpool for a while. I was delivering an urban outdoor education programme. At night I listened to a pirate radio station called TCR or Toxteth Comminity Radio. One DJ was called Encosi Fly. He played Fela Kuti's 'Sorrow Tears and Blood' every night as his closing track. Like the thing about metal below, MOBO always seemed to me to provide an outlet for the grasping of the polemic and the political and render it personal. Music is a healing force in so many ways.
The album of my 16th year was 'Who's Next' by the Who. On it was 'Baba O'Riley' and 'Won't Get Fooled Again' I am over 60 and to this day these tracks make the hairs on the back of my neck stand up and John Entwhistle's air bass comes out. We also listened to 'Sabbath Bloody Sabbath'. This is such a true article. Metal and heavy rock generally for me is an outlet for disdain. It comes out through the music so it doesn't come out in my life. Metal is a lifesaver.
