We miss you…

Hi everyone,

It’s officially been a month since the end of the Fringe Festival. This is the saddest kind of anniversary. It’s a sad-iversary. 

See? We’re so sad we’re resorting to puns like this. Please don’t hold it against us, we still love you, and we miss you. 

We were thinking of ways to ease the pain. There’s always wine… but that’s a bit cliché. 

And there’s always positive and healthy living, but… that’s worse.

So instead let’s reminisce. Together.

Over the next few months, leading up to the festival, we’ll be taking a look a few of the artists who’ve debuted works at Fresh Meat over the years to see just where they’ve ended up, where they’ve taken their work, and just what they’re up to. Stay tuned.

So join us. You can still have wine, of course. Everyone loves a cliché.

Our Gift to You: The Weekend Inventive

 We’re all praying for the weekend. You’ve got a case of the Monday’s, to work hangover Tuesday, hump day, tricking yourself on Thursday into thinking it is Friday, counting down the last hours until Friday night arrives- sleeping in then spelling out Saturday followed by yelling night. It’s what we all want, it’s a place where dreams come true, adventures can be had and there are risks to be taken. Here at Fresh Meat, we totally get this. Which is why we want to take full advantage of the weekend and make some dreams (probably of the more artistic variety rather than the club grinding drinking kind) come true. Consider this your formal introduction to: The Weekend Inventive.

February 26-28 we are booking studio space to allow two groups to start creating a new piece which will then result in a public viewing and party- because art is always best paired with a party. We are looking for people to push past their boundaries and take some big risks to then be able to present them in a low risk environment. The most exciting thing to see is some one really push, and whether it is a complete success or a train wreck there’s at least something dangerous to watch.

So if you’re someone looking to try out a new style of solo show, or a new collective looking to try working together or a company looking to try something new- we want you. Take these holidays to re-connect with your artistic love and practice and apply to the Weekend Inventive. Fill out this application form and get it back to us by February 1st.

All the best,

Fresh Meat.
