The latest episode of Designing Worlds – where we visit some of the regions of the LEA (Linden Endowment for the Arts) – is now on the web!

We take the opportunity to explore the work that some of the artists have produced as a result of the six month grant of an entire region.

And there’s real diversity on offer, from the beautiful Monochrome installation created by Giovanna Cerise, to the fascinating watercolors that you can wander in, created by Ceakay Ballyhoo. Then we look at another form of art as we explore the region designed for dance performances by Royal Shippe and Diiar Vader, before we slip through the fun of Snarl by Kanashimi Mac, and finally visit an installation that blends poetry and art in Invictus, created by Storm Septimus.

The range we see is awesome, and we also be talk about the next round of grants for LEA regions. You too could have an opportunity to follow your dream of creating a region wide installation (and probably with the full 30,000 li/prim limit we are promised soon). To do this, go to: http://lea-sl.org/form/lea-air-land-grant-application-round-twelve and complete the form.

Join us today, Monday 3rd November at 2pm SLT Designing Worlds studio in Garden of Dreams for what might be nostalgic for some, and an American icon for others – the world of High School – as we pay a visit to Rocky Valley High School!

In the past we’ve visited family communities and camps, even a school for younger children. This week we step into the world of jocks and cheerleaders, nerds and plastics, as we visit an American High School. We see the classes, the social activities and the sports, and we learn some of the reasons why people enjoy re-living their teen years, hang-ups, hang-outs, heartaches and all!

There are other roles you can play in the community, and we learn something about that too from our two hosts – Kate Watson, Admissions Administrator and Michele Sabetha, Captain of the Cheer Squad.

And the community itself has a wider role to play. We first met the cheerleaders of Rocky Valley High School at Relay for Life when they had a campsite opposite the telethon studio and were doing enthusiastic cheers all weekend!
