A SPECIAL “GHOST BUS” EVENT AT THE GALLERY (WED. JUNE 5) IN BEESTON-NOTTINGHAM, UK

TheGhostBus2019_n

Guest Writer: MARYSIA ZIPSER, Founder of ACT Group

Roberto Alborghetti, the official biographer to Pope Francis, visual artist, best selling author and award-winning environmental journalist, is returning to Beeston, Nottingham next month.

For one evening Roberto Alborghetti will be on stage sharing his fascinating stories which span secrets from the Vatican kitchens in Rome to how a decaying old vehicle in a former bus garage in Beeston inspired his film, The Ghost Bus.

An audience from across the country is gathering on Wednesday evening June 5th to hear Roberto talk about what inspires him and how art is actually lurking around each and every corner of our day to day lives if only we took the time to observe it.

Nostalgia for 1950’s coach tours, the passage of time and a sense of homecoming has created this enduring legacy of the Ghost Bus project.

This was itself originally inspired by close observation by Roberto of a long-preserved historic coach in Bartons’ Docking Shops, buildings which currently house an unusual and much-loved events space. These elements make this ‘In Conversation with’ evening a very special proposition.

The Ghost Bus project with its short films and musical compositions, some from local singer-songwriter, Jeanie Barton means this one off event has come to its spiritual home.

This special Ghost Bus event – “In Conversation with… .Roberto Alborghetti” takes place on Wednesday 5th June from 7 pm at The Gallery, 43 High Road, Beeston, NG9 4AJ. 

Tickets are available from Eventbrite: £12.50 | £8  —  (£15 on the door)

“… Since the moment we started to put online some pictures, flyers, cards series and video trailers, a lot of people across the world have been expressing, thinking and commenting on the Ghost Bus project.  This is the power of visual arts and musical arts.  This is the wonder of a family history, the Bartons.  This is the beauty of what human beings can do through creativity and mutual cooperation.” (Roberto Alborghetti)

“SOON” VIDEO: VALENTINE’S DAY SPECIAL VERSION…COLORS, FLOWERS AND BEES…

A very special “Valentine’s Day” version of “Soon”, video created in collaboration with jazz singer and composer Jeanie Barton. Her wonderful voice goes with my abstract photos from “Lacer/actions” project and research. Pictures and great vocals. The macro-photos of cracks and scratches on poles were taken along the streets in Beeston-Nottingham on March 2017. The videoclip is part of “The Ghost Bus Roads” project promoted by Bartons Plc, Roberto Alborghetti Lacer/actions and ACT Group founded by Marysia Zipser. Happy Valentine’s Day!

GUEST WRITER: MARYSIA ZIPSER – ACT GROUP

For his 5th time to Beeston since October 2014, Roberto Alborghetti is now one of our Beeston community and a highly respected VIP of Nottingham. Roberto is not only the biographer to Pope Francis, but a wonderful visual artist, award winning Arts & Culture & Environmental journalist, best selling author, and Chief Editor of OKAY! Magazine established 20 years ago, which goes out to every school in Italy.  He regularly lectures all around Italy to students and presents at European book fairs which now accounts in thousands.  Roberto is an inspiration to us British citizens, and has now been honoured by the City of Nottingham Lord Mayor on his March visit in 2017.

Since the Show of The Ghost Bus short films which Roberto produced March 2015 with Bartons plc at Chilwell, in conjunction with ACT / Art Culture Tourism, there has been global impact and publicity, which has grown and grown each year.  It has brought a wonderful collaboration and strong links between Beeston/Nottingham and Tuscany which has developed into a business and art/cultural and food/drink/fashion/textiles and festivals synergy.  And so the ACT/The Ghost Bus Project/Robin Hood Initiative is travelling around the world 2018, to countries who wish to collaborate to help sustain their art, cultural, tourism and educational projects.  For the last two years, countries like USA, Canada, Egypt, Mexico and Ghana, to name a few, are particularly keen for us to visit them to initiate such projects.
