Leap Day 2016

A quick reminder, this year we get a bonus day in the calendar, Monday Feb 29th is Leap Day. Four years ago several of us took advantage of this extra day and gathered in London for some useful fun. Several lovely opportunities for reflection arose throughout the day too, including this scene, titled ‘The Anonymous Artist’, beautifully captured by Jon Bartlett.

Leap Day 2016 is starting to take shape and will involve a number of curious, cocreated and community minded things to try out. Here’s a first cut of what we might get up to on the day. Would you like to join us?

Down the rabbit hole

On Leap Day, we will meet around 10.30am at the Alice in Wonderland exhibition, in the entrance hall of the British Library.

I am planning some things for us to do throughout the day and there will be room for improvisation too. If you would like to bring an idea along for us to play with – feel free, and please be aware that we may not use it. I intend to have too much to do for the time we are together. Some of the fun will be in choosing what to do and what not to do. The day is over when it is over – leave when it suits you. We may totter into a pub in the late afternoon/early evening – we’ll see. Feel free to take part in as much or as little as you choose – the day will be invitational as far as we can make it so.

There is a small charge per head to cover design and materials, £30 plus VAT = £36.

I’ll provide details of how to get that to me below and your place will be confirmed once the money has been exchanged. You’ll need to budget for your own food and refreshments along the way and I’m not currently planning to use a fixed venue – we will be on the move stopping at various interesting and unusual places through the day to do cool stuff.

I’d prefer not to use EventBrite or PayPal to collect money as their fees will only add to the cost. Please contact me directly through the website, Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn and I will give you my bank details. You then ping me the money,  I send you a receipt and your place is confirmed. Simple as that.

Update: February 10th 2016. There are two places left for Leap Day 2016, if you fancy coming along it would be lovely to see you.
