RatholeRadio 73 – 6th Mar 2012

A slightly overdue Rathole Radio this time. I missed the live show on Sunday unfortunately due to exhaustion, so I recorded this show offline instead. I skipped the live song but I did manage to cram in a bumper selection of eclectic music as always. Normal service will be resumed next time I promise.

storytotellLiverpool based Community Interest Company Pencil Trick Productions have created a brand new initiative in creative networking events.

These bi-monthly forums will be held across Liverpool and aim at connecting all sorts of creative people who have a "story to tell" with those people who have a means to tell them.

They are looking to to link scriptwriters with directors, bands with video producers, artists with gallerias, to name but a few. On a larger scale they also want to put local community groups and social enterprises who have something to tell the world in touch with the production companies, writers and videographers who can help them.

So if the Kin networking events aren't for you and let's face facts they aren't everyones cup of tea then this looks perfect. 

A new type of film event is coming to Liverpool's vibrant arts scene, but one which you need to keep your eyes peeled and your wits about you to catch. On the 6 and 7 March 2012, Reel Unknown invites you to enter a secret world, its Hidden Picture Show, and explore the unknown. The film that will be shown? A secret. The event's location? Undisclosed. Avid film fans will have to follow subtle clues revealed via twitter and facebook regarding these vital factors, opening the debate on which unique adventure ticket holders will discover.

5926037286_6ddda6aab3_oWe finally see it - a year in the making but now Hack for Culture has a name it can't be sued over. It is set to set the world of arts data alight by bringing the glorious arts & cultural organisations of Liverpool together with Merseyside's Digital and Creative industries to explore and experiment with a wide variety of hidden cultural data sets.  

"A data set (or dataset) is a collection of data, usually presented in tabular form. Each column represents a particular variable. Each row corresponds to a given member of the data set in question. It lists values for each of the variables, such as height and weight of an object. Each value is known as a datum. The data set may comprise data for one or more members, corresponding to the number of rows." Wikipedia - so probably wrong.
