Fatberg, Saâdane Afif, The Culture Code, CandoCo & Chimamandra and Remi (B+A Bulletin #129)

Happy hump day, friends.

How are you? Hope all is well in your world?

Yesterday, B+A decided to switch up our weekly team huddle by doing a walking meeting instead of a static one. We discussed our work on the way to the infamous Fatberg at the Museum of London. In the words of the genius Stephen Hawking – ‘remember to look up at the stars (or fat in this case) and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious.’

Let’s get to B+A Bulletin one.two.nine…

B+A Brilliance

Today, Andrew’s at one of Rosy’s favourite spots: Wiels, where Berlin-based Parisian conceptual artist Saâdane Afif is currently exhibiting. Afif’s thing is letting you finish and remix his work. In the gallery there’s even a fully working recording studio (with keyboards, drum kit, tabla, guitars – you name it) where you can record your version of his lyrics. So, if you find yourself in Brussels before April 4th, do as AM said way back when: go, have fun and make good music.

B+A Books etc.

Andre has placed a fresh copy of Daniel Coyle’s Culture Code on each of our desks ready for us to dig in to and discuss at the next B+A book club. The Culture Code offers a roadmap for creating an environment where innovation flourishes, problems get solved, and expectations are exceeded. This is our kinda book – culture isn’t who you are, it’s all about what you do. Read along with us, and reply to this Bulletin if you want to join our next book club – the door is open!

B+A Big Up

CandoCo are a mixed disabled and non-disabled dance company. We saw them last week at Sadler’s Wells in London. More than beautiful, their work gets you thinking again about what it is to be truly elegant, skilful, and expressive. If you’re in the UK, catch them – they’re currently on tour. Just look at CandoCo’s Joel Brown in the pic above – it’ll be well worth your while.

B+A Babble

The incredible Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Reni Eddo-Lodge joined forces and blessed their captivated audience with their thoughts on feminism, class, race, gender and social media. Ade’s key quote from the event, “don’t waste time thinking about what people think.” Live your best life. Their talk is great background chat for a working day – have a little eavesdrop on their conversation here.

 

B+A Bye…

Check in same time, same place next week folks? Sounds good? Fab. We’ll have the kettle on and a cuppa ready. Til then, keep fighting the good fight.
