An inspiring week for Books&Print

As our Books&Print Sandbox projects approach their final workshop, REACT Producer Jo reflects on their recent achievements

As our Books&Print Sandbox projects approach their final workshop, REACT Producer Jo reflects on their recent achievement. She writes:

"I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that I get a real kick out of the sense of community which has developed in and around our Books & Print Sandbox projects. This was brought home to me again yesterday as I left work and caught sight of a group of projects drinking together in Watershed's bar. Collegiality isn't a frivolous 'add on' to what we are trying to achieve, its at the very core of Sandbox. Sitting down with each of the projects last week, a sense of common endeavour was again evident in the excitement building around our final (sniff) workshop on Wednesday when they will show each other what they have made for the first time. There is probably a little bit of healthy competition pushing them on, but also a genuine respect for each others' opinion and a desire to share their achievements. As well as demoing their creations, this workshop will ask the teams to consider their next steps in terms of both business development (with sessions led by our wonderful business mentor Mark Leaver) and press (with the fabulous Ladbury PR). It feels like the right time for this as both areas resonate with the meetings and blogs this week, where discussion of life post-Sandbox and how the work might be packaged ready for it dominated."
