One year to go!

It's one year to go until the Olympics! Apparently the preparations in London are all on track. I'm busy here at Bath Spa with preparations for 2012 too.

Our Games, Our Values
Our resource pack for primary schools in the South West, exploring the Olympic Values, is being designed as I write. Five history students are leading on this. In September they will test the resource pack in local schools before we give it away free of charge to over 300 primary schools later in the year.

Illuminate Bath 2012
The second Illuminate Bath will take place on 25 - 28th January 2012. I promise these will be four very special evenings to look forward to in Bath. We're working with some amazing artists who are currently developing and testing ideas. We'll be launching our new website in a couple of months.

I'm a BT Storyteller

I'm really chuffed to hear that I'm going to be a BT storyteller.

I'm one of about 100 members of the public to be selected. Storytellers include artists, athletes, filmmakers, writers, bloggers, celebrities, social networkers, designers, photographers and musicians. Over the next year we'll be telling our stories about London 2012 and helping to capture the excitement that is building around the country. 

I've just been reading about some of my fellow storytellers on the website and it's fascinating stuff. It should be a great platform for sharing the RELAYS work we've been doing in the south west with more people. 

I'm looking forward to writing more and I might get the opportunity to attend special events etc. Apparently we'll be set different challenges. How intriguing!
