Fundraising event for the Stop the Traffic
Evie and Tony’s Collaboration
Evie and Tony met at Collage-network’s three Bromley Library workshops , Tony as trainer and Evie as participant. After the first workshop and during the sharing background unit, the two recognised that they shared an interest in the creative arts.
Evie, is studying for a English literature degree with the Open University degree and is a professional singer and songwriter. Tony as well as being a qualified teacher is also editor of the online magazine called ‘Hot Wild and Free’.
Tony was organising a fundraiser for the charity Stop the Traffik backed by his magazine and asked for collaborators at the workshop.Evie offered to perform for free at the upcoming event.
The chain of collaboration goes further as Evie actually recommended and provided three of the acts for the talent evening, as well as introducing Tony to the sound engineering for the event. This was through Evie’s Music Technology contacts at Croydon College.
Tony organised the event and was able to get the venue for free.
Nikki from Collage-network helped to publicising the event, brought a couple of tickets and made sandwiches for the performers and team!
Matt, one of the participants of the Bromley Collage workshop also attended the event and Pam from Collage-network brought a ticket despite being unable to attend due to a clash of engagements .
None of the people mentioned ever thought that they would be involved in the above when they first became involved in the first Collage-network workshops!
