    'Delivering in the Clutch' With Lee Olsen

    It is near impossible for one to possess the “drawing skills of an 8 year old” and ever realistically have their work be showcased and shared all over the world on social media, various websites, posters, in newspapers and as part of a globally acclaimed video game franchise. As all the motivational phrases profess- yes, anything is possible. However, how many of us can actually pull that feat off? Becoming an accomplished, professional artist, with seemingly basic “artistic” talent, as jokingly implied by our next featured artiste?

    Dražen Priganica: In The Service of Entertainment

    Many things compete for our short attention spans in 2019. Going down the YouTube rabbit-hole almost guarantees amusing videos for some; uploading, scrolling and swiping through pictures and videos on our favourite social media applications, waiting for the “likes” to flood in is another. Music videos, binge watching popular box sets or reality tv-series, wildfire circulation of social media memes that take a life of their own and video games are some of the old and new favourites we engage with for entertainment. Maybe this example is generational but even BBC Parliament’s coverage of Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Brexit vote, which “hit an all-time [television] ratings high” for its cacophony of grumbles and posh disses that were flung across the floor in Westminster with a Brexit deadline looming, was highly entertaining…if not a bit disturbing. The British public and global political aficionados may also miss the bellowing of former Speaker of the House John Bercow’s “Ooorrrdddaaaahhhh!” as he retires. The forever-content-giving Donald Trump in a re-election bid and the impending airing of Boris’ dirty laundry are also bound to be high stakes, news-worthy drama too!

    Acting and Dancing in Inner City Leeds

    Imagine being a 10 or 13-year-old boy, living in Yorkshire, United Kingdom, black, raised mainly by your mother, in pre-Brexit England and into performance arts; acting and dance- specifically ballet. Reading this, you may (or may not) be inclined to think that those are several odds already stacked against a young ethnic minority boy growing up in the U.K. But what if we told you it didn’t have to be?
