We held our first exhibition at the White Horse Hotel in Romsey yesterday supporting Dementia Awareness Week (DAW) and would lke to thank everyone who visited us and either bought prints or contributed to the donations bucket. We would also like to thank the management team of the White Horse for their support and  Caroline Nokes and Mark Edgerley (Romsey Town Manager) for their support and encouragement.

It appears that many people have relatives or know someone with dementia and we met several groups of people inclduing ROMDAG who are very active in Romsey.

I am one of those strange people that skim-read through junk mail and last year I read an article about an app called Prisma. I was intrigued by its effects on an ordinary photo and so I downoaded it and what a journey I have had!!

This is what they say -“Prisma transforms your photos and videos into works of art using the styles of famous artists: Van Gogh, Picasso, Levitan, as well as world famous ornaments and patterns. A unique combination of neural networks and artificial intelligence helps you turn memorable moments into timeless art.”

It has made me much more aware of  my surrounding environment – cloud formations, buildings, vistas etc  Click here to see some of my images…

I will be holding an exhibition of some of my ‘works of art’ on Weds 17th May at the White Horse Hotel in Romsey from 10 am – 7.30 pm I am also supporting research into dementia by donating some of the profits from the sale of prints to the Alzheimer’s Society.

Workzmarter not harder

Yes after a few months off – moving house, clearing boxes from rooms and doing the garden etc I have determined to come back to blogging again. Those who blog regularly (@gavinmeikle ‏) will know how it takes a lot of effort to keep this up. But I use my blogs to send to the other platfiorms – Twitter(@davidvane@), Facebook, Linkedin and Google+.

However the internet never sleeps so following a billiant presentation by David Taylor (@savvysocialdt) at the FSB breakfast meeting last week he has suggested some things to consider if we are going to keep up. Here is a sample…

Which ‘generation’ are you – Veteran – Baby Boomer – Generation – Millenial – or Generation Z??? Because depending on your description and that of your target clients you may need to change your approach? For example last year I learnt that young people don’t search for a new phone on Google they use their peer groups on Facebook, Twitter,or Snapchat!!! So it doesn’t matter how much you spend on SEO and adwords you are not going to find them. That was then!!!

For those intersted I have taken up playing again with a band called Goldrush Harmony and I am just about to launch as an artists with Evolving Art!  Busy Busy …

Interfaith Week #7 – Faith in Our City – Judaism

Tags

, , ,


In 2004 members of the Southampton Council of Faiths produced a series of six half hour programmes with Meridian TV looking at the six main different faith communities in the city. The programmes were an interesting and an educative insight into the lives of the Buddhist, Jewish, Hindu, Muslim, Sikh and Christian communities and their daily lives. We will look at each of these during Interfaith week – Today it is the faith of Christianity – see video here …

A Jew is a person born to a Jewish mother (or father in Liberal movements), or who has converted to Judaism. Jews believe in one God. Jewish prayers are directed to God alone. Jews believe that the Ten Commandments were given to Moses on Mount Sinai. The Torah contains the laws and commandments by which the Jewish people live.

Most Jews identify strongly with the State of Israel. Jewishness presents a unique expression of a history, culture and faith united by a desire to lead a constructive and spiritual life. It is a way of life maintained by the Jewish people throughout thousands of years. Being a people that has followed particular laws and customs throughout the ages has helped the Jews to survive as a community through periods of antisemitism, persecutions, and expulsions. The Jews were expelled in 1290 during the reign of Edward 1st but were readmitted in 1656/1657 by Oliver Cromwell and there has been a formal Jewish Community in Southampton since 1833. 6 million Jews died in the 2nd World War Holocaust. Many religious Jews believe that one day in the future the Messiah will come. Read more…

Southampton Council of Faiths ( SCOF ) was set up in May 2001 to promote understanding between faiths in the city. It represents the faith community in dialogue with public bodies – Police Service, Fire Service, Health service. For more details about events in Interfaith Week please go to our events page...
