how Jane Asher inspired Campaign’s Creativity issue cover

“Next issue is the creativity issue.” Ooh, that’s exciting. I’ll be able to do something creative.

A few months ago there were some viral tweets of images from a fancy dress book from the early 1980s by Jane Asher – of cakes, Sir Paul McCartney and acting fame.

There was something about the images that everyone seemed to respond to.

Whether it was the lavish flourishes of the costumes, the bizarre cheese sandwichiness of some of the costume choices or the incongruous moods on the facial expressions of the (sometimes celebrity) models – everyone who looked at it seemed to

Is it air-conditioned adequately, or at all? For artists who produce multimedia works and large-scale installations, spacious exhibition halls are vital yet not that easy to find.

Collective creativity: Jerusalem coming back to life

It warms the cockles, nay exhilarates, to see our cultural life return to ever more robust tracks. Seeing, for example, the Israel Festival take place, despite everything we have endured over the past year and a bit – not to mention more recent violent events – is hugely encouraging. But, if we are to continue to create, and to enjoy the product thereof – surely a fundamental requisite of the human race – we need to address the grassroots.
