HOUR 1: Out And About – Conversations with People on the Street about Questions That Matter
We discuss ‘What does tolerance mean to you?’ If you had to imagine your perfect world what would it look like? How do people treat each other in this world? How do they feel about one another? How do they interact and communicate? Tolerance encompasses attitudes as well actions, individual choices as well as social, political and legal commitments. It is also a vision that encompasses everybody. Every person is both a purveyor and beneficiary of tolerance. So, what does tolerance mean to you? Join the conversation!
HOUR 2: (Begins at 0:49 mins) Arts Interview with Frances Bromley
I interview Frances Bromley, one half of the creative force behind innovative design company Scabetti, the other half being Dominic Bromley her long-time partner and husband. Since their company began with the launch of the Amoeba candlestick and small dish in 1999, Dominic’s sculptural forms have been an iconic addition to the world of design. Frances graduated in 1991 from Brunel University with a first class Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Design. Brunel was also where she met her partner Dominic. PhD studies, marriage, an intense design career path in London working with Hasbro and FremantleMedia and three children later, she now works alongside her husband under their own label Scabetti. Since the formation of Scabetti in 1999, Dominic and Frances Bromley have become renowned for their installations that bring together the sculptural form with engineered elegance. Frances now balances family life with the design and installation of sculptures in corporate headquarters, cruise ships, shopping centres and private homes around the world. They also travelled last year to our very own Santa Cruz to install a beautiful commission of their iconic Shoal.
