Today, Wednesday 1st July 2015, marked the beginning of Tanteo. We are all very excited to be embarking on this project.
Today has been a day of introductions. Meeting our core participants who will be joining us for the duration of the project. Introducing them to each other. Showing them their home from home for the next week. Introducing them to Tooting and to Croydon, our first locations. Getting to know the team from Turf Projects, our host institution in Croydon. Exploring the amazing space they have kindly given us free reign over. Presenting the brief history of MilesKm and outlining how we got to today. Also, and possibly most importantly, we tentatively began to introduce our new collaborators to the structure of our project, the modus operandi of Tanteo. Introducing them to the reality that they will be shaping the programme to suit their self defined research and learning needs. That we will be working collaboratively to create a vibrant, outward facing, opportunity for learning, dialogue, artistic action and institution building.
An exciting prospect. Day One complete. We are already looking forward to tomorrow.
(Note: We were also introduced to Georgian wine this evening, and we were very happy to have met them.)
