Technical Difficulties – 10 May 2013

Today we feature an interview conducted by John Pring of Disability News Service with Cornwall Councillor Collin Brewer, who was recently re-elected to serve the Wadebridge East ward.

The full piece is available here: http://disabilitynewsservice.com/2013/05/colin-brewer-there-is-a-good-argument-for-killing-some-disabled-babies/

Cllr Brewer told Disability Cornwall in 2011 that disabled children should be “put down” because the money spent on them was better allocated to projects with a broader reach.

He resigned as a councillor in earlier this year but was re-elected last week.

Art Monthly Show on Resonance FM, 13 August 2010

Mark Prince investigates art that uses language, and discusses the ways that narrative manifests itself in contemporary art.

Coline Milliard reports back from  Falmouth Convention organised by Teresa Gleadow with University College Falmouth. Artists, critics and curators gathered to discuss whether a bid to host Manifesta in Cornwall in 2014 was viable, or even worthwhile. Faces around the debating table included writer Lucy Lippard, artist Tacita Dean, Director of the Banff Centre in Canada Kitty Scott, director of Grizedale arts Adam Sutherland and co-curator of Manifesta 8 Bassam El Baroni.

The debate quickly zoned in on the central question: are residencies worthwhile? Is the work produced on residencies likely to benefit the local community – who are, after all, stumping up the bill. Cornwall have been told that they would have to find a cool 3m euros is they want to host Manifesta in 2014.
