‘No amount of cajolery, and no attempts at ethical or social seduction,
can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred for the Tory Party.
So far as I am concerned they are lower than vermin’.

THE SIMPSONS MOVIE

The locals’ casual disregard for the environment leads to Springfield being sealed off from the outside world – not even Greenday can make a difference. The Simpsons Movie is right up there with classic TV episodes such as ‘Radio Bart’, ‘Homer Badman’ and ‘Flaming Moe’s’.

Very, very funny and genuinely cinematic – a rare opportunity to see this film outdoors on a big screen, with communal laughter ringing in your ears (and you get to see Bart’s doodle, too!).

 

ART IN THE PARK - 

OUT OF YOUR BOX!

 

The Wildcat Arts Collective helped children to build a wall of the imagination at this years Art In The Park. The form of a cardboard box was chosen because of its associations with the storage of intimate personal items and to invoke the sense of mystery surrounding ideas of what a sealed box might contain. THE KIDS TOOK COMPLETE CONTROL AND MUCH FUN WAS HAD.

SPOIL SPORTS 2012

AN AFTERNOON OF FUN AND SILLY SPORTS 
REJECTED BY THE OFFICIAL OLYMPICS
Saturday 16th June
1.00 – 4.00pm
Chestnuts Park
St Ann’s Road
Tottenham N15
ALL ACTIVITIES & ENTRANCE WERE FREE
In the spirit of Jeux Sans Frontieres (Games Without Borders), the Wildcat Arts Collective and the Friends of Chestnuts Park held the 2012 Nolympic Games.

This community event was not be sponsored by giant corporations that exude a healthy image for people and planet (McDonalds, Coca Cola, BP). Olympian profiteer Seb Coe was not a consultant. There was no z-list celebrity opening these games and there was no bowing and scraping because no minor royal was there (too busy 3 -Day Eventing – and not as riders). No useless politicians were looking for a photo opportunity (if they did show up, wet sponges and stocks were available).

There were no drones, no snipers (maybe the odd Super-Soaker), no surface to air missiles, no secret police (apart from the usual one or two). Nobody will tried to sell sweat-shop t-shirts, t-towels or t-mobiles – there was tea and cake though. No cheap plastic keyrings, whistles or bells with shockingly designed logos on them, no plastic union jacks made by children in China. 

There was however, a 100 foot inflatable obstacle course, sumo wrestling suits and a gladiator duelling arena. There were silly races and giant games including twister, jenga and connect four, as well as a tug of war, splat the Tory Rat and stocks/sponges. Haringey Play Association provided inclusive games and Mr Giles made alternative Olympic torches. All free!


Over 1000 people came along and had some good clean/dirty fun. Everyone was picked for the team!


Friends of Chestnuts Park – Join the mailing list to find out more about future events such as our outdoor film screening in September. Much has been achieved over the last ten years but there is still lots to do and the withdrawal of nearly all staffing from the park since the recent cuts is going to put all our improvements in peril unless it is reversed. The more of us who are active in Friends of Chestnuts, the stronger the campaign can be. You can also contact us at friendsofchestnutspark@hotmail.co.uk

Attila The Stockbroker

As part of the ’1936 – RADICAL ROOTS’ programme at the Jewish Museum,we were asked to curate an afternoon for kids – where we screened some cheeky animation/film and the marvellous Attila The Stockbroker kindly agreed to do a ‘child friendly’ set for us which was lovely.  http://www.jewishmuseum.org.uk/

wildcatarts collective and steam industry free theatre presented…

around the world in eighty days…an action packed adventure

Freely adapted from the novel by Jules Verne and the musical by Phil Willmott and Annemarie Lewis Thomas, this open air theatre event attracted over 200 people to the Shell Theatre in Lordship Rec and took them on a whistle stop tour of four continents, as dashing Victorian adventurer Phileas Fogg and his hapless servant Passepartout recounted their daring attempt to cross the globe in record time. A wayward balloon, a beautiful princess, a grumpy elephant, sacred cows, some well placed digs at British imperialism, a wild west outlaw, a Chinese dragon and countless timetable calamities all conspired to help or hinder our heroes.  It was a lovely sunny day as the award-winning resident company gave us their celebrated blend of comedy, puppetry, music and mayhem for all ages. This was preceded by a well attended drama workshop.

‘Genius… a complete delight’ The Guardian

LA BEAUTE EST DANS LA RUE

stationers park hornsey

 

 

The Wildcat Arts Collective set up some large easels in Stationers Park at The Hornsey Vale Community Centre May Gala - and recreated the world of the French street artist circa May 1968, whereby children made portraits in pastels, charcoal & paints (abstract, figurative or naive) of parents/carers/siblings with proper easels, berets, moustaches, Gauloises, etc supplied and all under the supervision of local artistes. We made some beauty in those North London streets. We also played a modified version of Splat The (tory) Rat and generally made mischief. For more information about the Gala go to: http://www.hornseyvale.org

DOWNHILLS PARK TOTTENHAM

art in the park!

For this
event we once again set up our 
mighty easels for some Abstract
Expressionism. This was an American post World War 2 art movement that was full of emotional intensity and an anti-figurative aesthetic – it had an image of being rebellious, anarchic and a bit self-destructive. It was messy (capes were provided), it was emotional and it was even therapeutic (many parents/carers had a go). Think, action painting, paint-bombing, finger-painting, catapults, Mark Rothko and of course, Jackson Pollocks to the cuts.

  

cats against cuts!
