Laura came across this on the weekend and it is totally perfect for ARK. Just needs a lick of paint and I think it will be our very own cow, which will hopefully aid people finding us on the night.ARK mascotGoing pinkGoing pinkFinished mascot

Over the last few months we have steadily built up new ARKies, many have come to the Wednesday meetings others kept in touch through email and online media. What seems to come up more and more often recently is why not as many people as we would like come to chat and discuss on Wednesday. To this end we have had a bit of feedback that ARK is a bit intimidating and possibly the language used is confusing. Also there is a small issue of knowing who the ARK group is and so who to approach on the evening. With all of this feedback in mind we have come up with a few ideas to help:FINDING ARK:

The 10th of February is a really important day for us We are going to be doing another Academy and also going to be working on an ideas generation workshop of one of the projects. So if any of you are in Cardiff on the 10th at around 7pm, you are more than welcome to come along to Cardiff Arts Institute and help us out.In the ideas workshop we will be looking into:RetailArt Theatreand Business while this is a broad selection of subjects we hope that this will interest as many people as possible to co-create ideas for a project we are working on.

There once was a group of friends who met every week. During these meetings there were lots of ideas and ventures that were explored. One day out of the blue a few of the friends set up a skype account to spread the word about how great a bedtime story can be. Ever since the group has broadcast to anyone who is awake, tales of adventurers, philosophical mastery right through to how a bird tweets. SO if you find yourself online at around 10:00pm GMT on a sunday evening, and are feeling like you would like a bedtime story to send you off to the land of nodd, tune in through your skype account. Search for 'a_bedtime_story' and you will be let into a world of magic and storytelling at it's best. Hope to hear you all there this weekend, and every weekend.PLACE: Skype, search for 'a_bedtime_story' DAY: Every SundayTIME: 10:00pm GMT

It's now been nearly two months and we have setup a small but promising little club. Initially we had started with no name and 'Wednesday Club' was coined by Lyns. We have now finally come up with something which we think fits 'ARK'. We are all very happy with it, and look forward to posting more of our thoughts. As you may have guessed we meet on Wednesday's in Cardiff.

Wednesday Club
