From the other side

For the past three years I've taken an active role in the GB brainstorming sessions. Most recently I've been ideas collator for the Media programme. Not tonight though. Tonight I'm just another punter.

I thought this would be easy. I thought teasing ideas out of 100 people was hard work (it's certainly exhausting). But tonight I saw it from the other side and I was stumped. Talks, fine art, light ents and music all came and went without me having a single moment of inspiration.

Thankfully there were others who weren't so tongue-tied though. By the end of the evening, the usual magic had happened - it looks like we'll have another unpredictable, innovative and fresh festival in August.
