I spent a really nice day in the “Land of Robin Hood”, meeting wonderful people, local artists and discovering the impressive Bartons International venue. Fellow blogger Marysia Zipser, Founder ACT Group (Art-Culture-Tourism) in Beeston, Nottingham, planned for me an intensive program.  I knew Marysia through LinkedIn network. Her  ACT  group is a voluntary community organisation promoting Art-Culture-Tourism in Beeston and surrounds inwards and outwards worldwide http://www.a-c-tgroup.com/; Marysia is an International Events Manager and Arts/Heritage Tourism promoter who lives at Beeston Rylands.

During my visit, I met Nottingham’s Robin Hood, Tim Pollard, at Chilwell’s Creative Corner together with Marysia Zipser, artist Pam Miller, author and  couch Shakti Shira Bassi (Heart leadership, Founder of Yoga & Shakti), David Humphreys (proprietor of “Created By Hand”, quality gifts by talented crafyters) and Mish Mash gallery, another  creative space for contemporary art, ceramics, retro and vintage pieces (you may buy there the original Robin Hood mugs..).

At Chilwell’s Creative Corner I had the way to tell my personal experience as author.  I talked about my new books “Francesco” and “Quando  il giorno era una freccia” (When the day was an arrow), which investigates the school years and the cultural background of Pope Francis. I’ve presented presented “Lacer/actions” art project about my research on torn and decomposed publicity posters and natural cracks, scratches and urban and industrial tokens.   

My visit continued to the spectacular Bartons Plc international venue ( Barton House, 61 High Road, Chilwell, Nottingham) and home to vintage buses and cars owned and managed by Simon Barton. In the garage buildings – where the “Carnival of Monsters”  contemporary art festival was being prepared, opening this Saturday night 11th October (until 25th) to co-incide with Beeston’s Oxjam music festival – I saw very interesting vintage buses and cars. Simon kindly told me the story about one of the oldest buses displayed there: the so called “Ghost Bus”. I was really fascinated by this authentic piece of story of the public transport in the land of Robin Hood… Some ideas and projects surely will come for my “Lacer/actions” artworks. But this is a next story…
