An arts association formed in 2016 by Dee Moxon, Steph Reeves, Ruth Ramsey and myself. Whilst continuing to pursue our individual projects, a shared socially engaged practice has seen us collaborate and support one another on many of the processional spectaculars and events in Bristol and the South West over the past two decades.
Our Goram Giant puppet appeared in his Garden at the Goram Fair, Blaise Castle on July 30th 2016 and in September 2017 we built a Giant Goram with local people from recycled card. His Cloak was illustrated with images and excerpts of stories of the Fair in the 1950s and 60s by children from neighbouring schools.
For the 2019 Goram Fair we will creating Avona’s Tide , a journey to meet Goram at Blaise Castle on her river and on land by the female heroine of the Goram myth. We will be involving the creative talents of the people of Avonmouth, Sea Mills, Shirehampton, Hengrove and Southmead in the creation of Avona and in the public events surrounding her journey to the Fair.
