I popped in to Inspire to have a game of Hoy and document the afternoon. Full details of what Hoy is and how to play it will be revealed in the newsletter!

Dropped in on the Latin American children's group Gotitas de Sabor (drops of flavour) on the Heygate estate and then to meet the Colombian group Chamimbe (below) at Pembroke House. There will be audio recordings of both on the Tate website.
I went to meet Amparo Rendon today, who works from a unit on the Heygate estate making masks and costumes with local children, and runs loads of other activities. When I went they were getting ready for a night procession at the Thames festival, and for a Latin American carnival in Camberwell, which we've asked the wonderful artist Ana Laura Lopez de la Torre to go along to and document for a piece for the newsletter.

On Sunday I went to St Christopher's Church with Inua Ellams to meet the church congregation and tell them about the Tate project. We were happy to have around 30 participants who took part in Inua's workshops after the service and produced some lovely pieces of writing. Thanks everybody and Inua!
