SIATC *UPDATE* April 2011

Dear Teacups,

Spring has sprung and the teacups have started rustling up some exciting plans for our summer programme. Keep your eyes peeled as once we have announced some of our projects we will be opening up our meetings for all, so if you fancy helping out on an artistic or organisational level there will be plenty of opportunities coming up. Please email storminateacup2009@googlemail.com if you want to get involved.

Thanks to all you lovely people who came to our Zine workshops we organised for Women of the World Festival at The Southbank centre. It was an epic weekend, with lots of our favourite zinesters leading fantastic workshops. Special thanks goes out to Soupa Creative Network, Shebang Zine, Magpies Magazine, Nest Gallary, VV Collective and the fabulous music programmed by Emmy the Great, Kate Nash and Verity from Storm in a Teacup. Huge thanks to all the artists, musicians, zinesters and participants that got involved.  We will be showcasing and unleashing the WOW festival commemorative zine onto the world very soon. So if you want to see the fabulous work everyone contributed over the weekend look out for our May update. In the mean-time you can check out some pictures of the event taken by Clare Kelly from Soupa Creative Network here:http://www.flickr.com/photos/okjo/5525970525/lightbox/
