A show about the population of Norfolk… starring the population of Norfolk. And you could be part of it!
We’re on the hunt for 100 men, women and children from across Norfolk to take part in performances of 100% Norfolk during the 2012 Norfolk & Norwich Festival. But we’re not looking for just any 100 people.
Together, they need to be as representative of the county’s total population of 862,000 as possible. So, with 51% of the county’s population being female, we need to find 51 women and girls to take part. Other criteria will include age, location and place of birth, so by the time we’ve found our cast of 100, it will accurately represent the make-up of the entire population of Norfolk.
As well as individuals, we are also interested in groups or clubs taking part together. It will be a great opportunity for you to share your particular interest or skill and don’t worry you do not need to have experience of being on stage either.
The 100% Norfolk cast will then come together to create a unique show, combining personal stories and revealing insights into what it’s like to live in Norfolk in 2012. A must for anyone who loves the place they call home, 100% Norfolk will be an illuminating and uplifting celebration of our county and our people.
If you or your group are interested in taking part or if you would like anymore information then please contact email@example.com or 01603 8777765

Outside In Surgery Day at Barrington Farm : Wednesday 1st February 2012
Are you an artist who finds it difficult to access the art world due to mental health issues, disability, health or social circumstance? Do you know an artist that would like some support?
Would you like an online presence?
Would you like to write about your work?
Do you want your friends and people in the artworld to see your art?
Following the success of our last Surgery Day in November, we are hoping to help even more artists get online so we are hosting another day here at Barrington Farm on Wednesday 1st February 2012 between 10:00am – 1pm and 2pm – 5pm.
The Outside In team will help you photograph and upload your artwork, write your artist statement and sign you up for your online gallery. Places are limited. You can bring up to 5 pieces of artwork and your artists statement if you have already one. Please bring a helper with you if required.
To book your free 45 minute 1-2-1 session or for further information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Sarah on 01692 650633
Address: Barrington Farm, Walcott, Norfolk NR12 0PF
Surgery Days are an opportunity to support artists to get their work online who may not have the skills or facilities to do so otherwise. The Outside In website allows artists to have a gallery where their work is shown to the public. This allows artists to have an online presence, creating ownership and access for the artist. It also provides a sense of community for artists who may otherwise feel isolated and allowing artists to gain new skills.
To see our past press release click here: http://norfolk.iwitness24.co.uk/en/photos/news/2011-11-28/482/rural-artists-get-their-work-online.html
There will be more Surgery Days coming up in the East and all over the country. For more information visit http://www.outsidein.org.uk/news_and_events
