It is often quite difficult to keep the momentum going with personal work. Having a deadline to work to was brilliant to help get to the next stage. My work, “All art is to some extent propaganda”, looks at life today in Myanmar in the context of the relationship George Orwell had with the country and the effect these experiences had on his writing.
I showed a first rough edit of the body of work produced so far. It is very much in its early stages and the event gave me the opportunity to talk through the context of the work and my ideas of how to present it. The responses and conversations proved very useful.
