A busy week just passed for Nicola with everything gearing up towards the events next week.

Then Thursday 29th November 2007 will be the first in the series of CLOCK PEOPLE – PUBLIC ART GATHERING.

Clock People, is the first of four Public Art Gatherings in Abbeyview hosted by Nicola Atkinson Does Fly, currently the artist in residence in the community. We hope all will enjoy this multi-media extravaganza to explore the 'art of time'.

The theme for first gathering will be 'THE IMPORTANCE OF TIME'. Nicola Atkinson Does Fly will show public artworks that she has created in places such as Cuba and Bosnia, while introducing possibilities for the future of public art in Abbeyview.

Co-hosting the evening with Nicola will be John Cavanagh, who for the last 15 years has worked for BBC Radio Scotland and the World Service/Radio International. He currently purveys twisted pop radio programmes to listeners in Latvia and New Zealand from a cellar in Pollokshields.

Nicola has worked with Nick Fells on a soundscape about time. Nick is a composer, performer and sound artist. He works in acousmatic, soundscape, instrumental and vocal composition, installation, and music for visual media and dance. Much of his music combines computer technology with live performance, extending and enhancing performance possibilities. He teaches composition & electroacoustic music at the University of Glasgow.

John Cavanagh will read stories especially written for this gathering by Phillip Miller.
