This month architect and artist Chris Fox spoke to us on the theme “Symmetry”. Whilst researching the topic, Chris discovered that ‘symmetry’ was a concept far greater than what he initially thought. He delved into symmetry in geometry, nature, music and how it applies to his own practice. It was a fascinating talk!

Her talk was incredibly inspiring and people left with a sense that any dream is possible if you just start on the journey.

This month Vashti Whitfield spoke to us on the theme “Intention”. It was one of our most impactful events to date. Vashti was so powerful with her message she had us laughing in one moment and crying in the next. We all left a little bit changed. I don’t think any one expected that a Friday morning talk could shake us in the way it did - in a very positive way.

Thank you Vashti for using your own personal story of loss to talk about legacy, intention and living powerfully in the present moment. I highly recommend watching the video of this talk if you missed it and also Vashti’s documentary about her late husband Andy Whitfield (Spartacus) - Be Here Now is currently on Netflix.

This month we had Benja Harney from Paperform join us to speak on the theme “Craft”. Benja talked about his unusual love of paper and his journey to becoming a Paper Engineer. He also spoke a lot about his processes and the intricacies of working with such an ephemeral medium. 

He also talked about that time he got a paper cut inside a paper cut! Ouch! 

Benja is an engineer but also a true artist. Thank you Benja for giving such an uplifting talk that had us all walk away with a skip in our step. The best way to start a Friday morning!
