Episode 4

Featuring Fab Lab Sunderland, the Caravan Gallery, freelance photographer Michael Davidson, and singer/songwriter Sinéad Livingston.

More information:

We kick off with an interview with Jason Legget, Project Director of the new “Digital Fabrication” space which is arriving in Sunderland in just two months’ time. The project, known as the Fab Lab Sunderland, will bring 3D printing, last-cutting and many other new technologies to the university and city of Sunderland – their Twitter.

We also intereviewed Jan Williams from the Caravan Gallery, a travelling exhibition which aims to bring communities together through locally focussed art. For much more info, you can check out my previous article on this blog – Caravan of Connections – or visit their official website and Twitter.

I also chatted with freelance photographer Michael Davidson. Based in Sunderland, Michael also works part-time at the Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art. Michael has been working as freelance for the past few years, and honestly I found his advice so down-to-earth and honest. You can find Michael on Twitter, or peruse his recent artwork. We’ve got more content coming from Michael in the future.

Last but absolutely not least, this episode’s music was provided by Sinéad Livingston, a local singer/songwriter. Sinéad has recently begun her journey as a “community musician”, and you can hear all about her passion and advice for other musicians in the podcast. I brought my DSLR with me whilst she strummed and sang by the riverside, so you’ll be able to catch a video of her performance in the next few days. In the meantime, you can check out her recent performance on On’t Sofa – or visit her own YouTube or Twitter.

And if you’re a musician, singer, or play in a band, and are interested in getting your music on our podcast, do get in touch – our email is 99PercentPodcast@gmail.com

Until next time…

Stay productive, stay awesome!
