Bullseye UK Lecture Tour “A Real Sleeper”

Artists Richard Whiteley and Heike Brachlow with Bullseye’s UK Director Karen Davies, wound up their five venue lecture tour through Scotland, Wales, Ireland and England last Sunday with twin presentations at the University of Ulster, Belfast.


First stop: the energetic Scottish crowd. Or Why the Scots Invented Whisky.

Despite the reaction of the Clackmannanshire  (you’d be exhausted too if you had to say that more than once) crowd, early reports indicate that our first speaking venture into the wilds of the British Isles was a success.

If any of our blog readers happened to attend, I’d love to hear your impressions. Richard and Heike’s was the first of what we intend to be a series of ongoing tours for our gallery artists to bring their ideas and methods to UK audiences in a show-and-tell project called “Inspire and Inform”.

If you missed the UK tour – or didn’t get enough – Richard and Heike will each be presenting again this summer – this time in the USA – at BECon 2009.  That’s in Portland, Oregon – where the Scots never sleep.

PS. Thanks to Heike for snapping the snoozers.

    Must have been one of those fabulous glass conference parties the night before, when you look close at this photo the room is full of sleeping people! They would have asked me to leave, I snore!

    I could listen to Richard talk for hours. I probably wouldn’t hear a word he said, I just love his accent. ;)

  3. Lani says:

    Ed, I have to admit: the photo was staged. Apparently Heike asked the audience to pretend to nod off. Yeah, I wonder if anyone also pretended to SNORE. LOL.

  4. Lani says:

    Toni, you and me both!

  5. Mike in the Netherlands says:

    What about the non-sleeping Scots in the Netherlands ? Or even Bullseye fans in other parts of Europe ? Any plans for a European tour ?
    Keep up the blogging – with photos.

  6. Lani says:

    So Mike, there are Scots awake in the Netherlands? Please tell!

    We’ve got another UK tour planned for next Fall. If that goes well, MAYBE we can look at the continent. We’re just Bullseye after all … not Napoleon…
