We are surviving! We've been unable to meet of course since Christmas but we still keep in touch every Thursday when Laura phones or texts everyone. We also have some projects on the go. Janet has invited us to submit a piece of work for a mail art project in Germany called "Send Me Your Light". She also asked if any Roamers would like to do some growing and she delivered seeds, plant pots and compost to the people who said they would. Janet also sent a card from us to everyone last week and this has been much appreciated.
We are very much looking forward to being all together again and will return to our base at Breadline as soon as possible, in limited numbers at first, as made possible by our wonderful funders the National Lottery Community Fund.
Now that lockdown is at last gradually lifting, we're looking back on the past year with a sense of achievement and a committment to a future together. Even when we couldn't meet, Roamers stayed in touch by way of our post card project (details here) -- we've posted most the them here. We shared paintings and drawings and photographs from Toby, Suzi, Jon and Not Just Any Girl. Keep an eye out for a new video soon with more details.

Roaming's official goal is "to carry on creative activities that benefit the community and in particular (without limitation) people who find themselves in some way disadvantaged, excluded or vulnerable." Our values are really our common ground: confidentiality, integrity, fairness, respect for the values and culture of others, the withholding of judgement, inclusivity, flexibility, and equity in relationships. "
We are grateful to the newly-renamed National Lottery Community Fund for their recognition, generosity and encouragement. For information about the funding Roaming received before 2019, please see Support for Roaming.
