This sounds like a bit of fun and sounds like it will make a point at the same time. Fair play to the Campaign for Arts for it! It will be a marked contrast to the disruption cause by the Union Protest on Friday!
For more on the National Campaign for the Arts, see their website, twitter and facebook. Best of luck to them!
Carmel has some videos from Luxembourg up on her blog, so I have robbed them in case you missed them! I of course am in them and the second video as me attempting Irish Dancing while under the influence. It really gives you a taste of what we got up to and why it was so much fun!
Part one: Presenting Our Online Identities Offline
Part Two: Intercultural Night
These videos reminded me of all the fun I had and what I learned! Thanks Carmel!
