Unfortunately, Fiona Hodges is no longer able to take an active part in the LAN committee planning, due to ill health, so for now, the LAN can't work without fellow artists on the committee. Therefore, this is a call for local Lincoln artists to take part in organising LAN events and become part of the LAN committee!
The Outer Trial Bank ACE grant proposal was sent as an individual application, but wasn't successful with funding. This wasn't going to be a problem, as it's a shame not to make use of the space, however, since then, I too have suffered some personal matters that mean that the project may be far less ambitious than first hoped.
Helen and Sue have been taking part in regular social cycle rides, and these are hoped to become a part of LAN art projects.
We hope to finally work regularly in Norman St. on Fridays for various projects.
The LAN has started to receive more interest again - plans for the Christmas Market are coming together - if you're an artist wishing to have a stall, please get in touch!
The first event we will be working on will be for the Revival anniversary, which is on Friday 20th September, and we hope to be in Norman St. to make cardboard bird wings for the Outer Trial Bank project, and we also have a bike that will be pimped up as a sculptural project to be displayed as part of the Outer Trial Bank, but also for LAN / Apparatjik bike rides along the Viking Way!
There will be an LAN bike ride, starting at Norman St. / Revival cafe, via the Water Railway route, along part of the Viking Way to Five Mile Bridge, returning via Washingborough to South Park, and back up the Viking Way via Sincil Bank to finish at Norman St. / Revival. Times and day tbc, as Sunday would be the best day, but Revival are having a geocaching event from 10.00a.m. to 4.00p.m.
You can bring your own bike to ride, or hire one from the train station opposite.
Bring cardboard to make bird wings to create a flock of cyclists, and if you have shiny stuff / disco lights to pimp the LAN Apparatjik bike, please bring along!
More details tbc!
