"Thank you for prompting me to come to this Marysia! It was an enjoyably eclectic evening, very warm and sociable." - Karen Med
"We found the evening fascinating, Roberto finds another angle with which to see the world; he slows us down and helps us to appreciate the here and now - the beauty of the everyday. It was refreshing and energising! " - Jeanie Barton
"Thank you for the live-streaming, wonderful to watch!" - Lee A. Meisner, Ohio, USA
“A relaxed evening listening to someone with an amazing range of interests and achievements, from being the official biographer of Pope Francis to a visual artist specialising in abstract photography.”
“Roberto’s work in education is fascinating: he has recently written a book articulating the concerns many have for the limiting effects of social media on young people.”
“William Ranieri was an impressive interviewer, and did much to create a positive and relaxing evening. As with all good interviewers he knew when to step back and when to gently nudge forward.” - All above comments from Robert Richardson
It was another culturally diverse, eclectic evening on Wednesday 30th May at the colourful Lace Market shop, tearoom and creative space of Debbie Bryan’s. I was delighted to be able to bring our Cultures Crossing events back into the city centre for its second time this year.
Entertaining us that night were Steve Benford, Celtic guitarist, Pam Miller Fine Artist (with paper pulp demonstration), Mike Payton storyteller, Manjit Sahota poet from Poets Against Racism group, and Vina Ladwa, Indian dancer from the Manushi Dance School. Thank you ALL SO much! You were all thrilling to watch and experience!
Debbie and her team are also celebrating their 10th anniversary at this site on June 20th - Congratulations to you all!! Such a great vibrant venue! Enjoy Inna Schutts wonderful photographs of the event!
