MAP update

After a meeting this morning at the Light with Jane and Hayley and The Black Pearl crew, it was decided not to go ahead with the launch on Thursday and although the Winter Wonderland will materialise over a few days in the unit and into The Light, we will not do a launch on Thursday as previously advertised. 

We need to recuperate after the storm and build to a charity event in the New Year, which we hope you can be involved in. MAP did not get hit that badly, but as many of you know The Black Pearl and many businesses were affected by the storm last Thursday. The new event will be a celebration of the black pearl, surviving the storm and the relaunch of the ground floor cinemas at The Light...with a working title of "After the storm".


The evening will be a community event and a fundraiser - probably for the Black Pearl and ourselves, the Momentary Art Project (we are a community interest company with 7 voluntary directors) and maybe other. We hope to use one of the screens (with kind permission from The Light) to show footage from a previous storm with live music, and use the foyer space for more activities such as music and poetry. As yet a date has not been decided upon but we will be meeting again next week.

Feel free to get in touch if you want to get involved. 

Other news: Still looking for folks to tender for mural

MAP directors Shaun and Liz managed to battle through and get some grant applications in to Love Wirral so fingers crossed and this is for an entirely different project...

We have many irons in the fire!

Great to see such a positive post - there are loads of rumours around that The Light and/or Morrisons will now be closing for good. These need to be well and truly quashed - Count me in!
