Rigging Rocks my world
Rigging. The most unexpected love of this summer. Sanctuary is about collecting other people’s stories about sanctuary in the natural world. About giving marginalised social groups space to tell their stories, to share their voice. About listening to and with others, and about sound scaping. It is also very much about rigging scaffolding!
As a woman, and a team of fellow females interested in building things it has been a really empowering experience. Most of the build crews on festival sites and at public events are male dominated, and men frequently comment and are suprised to find a group of women charged with putting up and taking down the industrial sanctuary cabin. I feel very excited by my introduction to large scale mechano, and am inspired to do more hands on practical stuff in the space considered more or less to be a mans world. A big thank you goes out to all the peeps who have helped with the journey of Sanctuary so far.
