To use our blog platform, it’s the same thing as CAD’s which is http://www.wordpress.com

StreetForms next school is one in Denerby but the date isn’t set. They were interested in the end of October though and specifically Graffiti Techniques.
We are hoping for some fresh ideas, and people, and polishing up of last years workshops so if you have some ideas (can be anything!) bringgg it!
When the date is set we will set up a session to go through our workshop so you’re familiar with it.
We also rotate role allocation. So for example, James, shivvers, Nat and myself did the last school. So the next school will be different people (only if you want to do it – we never force anyone to do so).
We are filling for funding, sometime within the next few weeks.

Long Toft Primary

Seeked us out, and we taught graffiti to year 5’s! Amazing?! We never did that at any time in my schooling career at all!

It was an amazing experience! We were adored.

One small step for StreetForm – One huge development for the futureeee!

Pictures coming at cha sooooooon!! wATCH THIS STEP ya heard

WE HAVE A SCHOOL!!

Yo Hommies,

We’ve been quiet recently, really quiet. I decided that ya know, with Exhibition Theory and Practice our time has been totally constraint.

UNTIL now! Good news has been spread about StreetForm and a school wants us 2 go in and help teach the Graffiti Workshop (boy how schools are changing!)- 4/5 of us is kool. It will be a great opportunity to actually have some hardcore experience and proof of how we work.

It’s in May still organising the date- they want – 1st/2nd May – but I’ve asked for the 7th onwards- so we’re completely free.

BUt great news!!! Its 2 classes of year 5s! In Stainforth – assuming the South Yorkshire one.

This is what we’ve been waiting for!! Lets hold a meeting on Thursday 10th April  2 prepare and get details and sort out who wants 2 do it, and who can who cant etc.  at 12:00  level 4, normal place!

Hope you guys have had a great easter and great exhibitions!

much love

smizz!!

We haven’t forgot!

Just a quick blog post to say that Streetform is still alive! Just with everything happening at once and funding going on Collab. E+T+P stuff…. and worrrrking all the time, Whilst trying to get some hardcore dates set to go into schools –

WE’RE TAKING A PHILOSOPHICAL BREAK. UNTIL SOMETHING COMES ALONG.

We do, however, already have a collaboration with London Arts School. So look out for more details…. We will be back shit hot in May when we have nothing else to do. :o)
