Hi Helen

The Big Tent website is FAB! This is so going to be the best year yet...

I'm thinking - how coudl I support you to begin to collect and share your thoughts on the 'behind the scenes' learning about putting on the festival? How about someone interviews you for 30 minutes to help you begin to think about what you've learned and are learning along the way? This could be recorded and built upon... It would be great if this could happen before the hosts' gathering in July...

best for now

Thanks for the welcome, Helen. We are getting a bit excited (if that's the right word) about the move which we realise will be in about 10 weeks' time...
More immediately, I look forward to seeing you on Tuesday.
