The plans for the Garden Bridge

In the first section we started off by looking at Thomas Heatherwick’s plans for a new Garden Bridge covered in trees and shrubs over the River Thames, and we marvelled at the amazing haul of modern artworks confiscated by the NAZIS and recently uncovered in a German pensioner’s flat. We also looked at the controversy surrounding “controversial lesbian drama” Blue Is The Warmest Color and gave some love to Sam Barclay’s book designed to convey what it’s like to be dyslexic.


Sam Barclay: I Wonder What It’s Like To Be Dyslexic

We kicked off the second section talking about Geoff McFetridge’s recent use of his Instgram feed to complain about an image in The New York Times he felt was too close to his own work and asked whether creatives were right to use social media feeds to raise these kinds of concerns.

Then we reflected on Sir Ken Robinson’s fascinating appearance on Desert Island Discs and we asked whether he is right to say that creativity can be taught in the same way as literacy.
