Cinema Politica Newcastle two years on ...

Cinema Politica Newcastle has been very busy this past year. By the end of 2012 we will have shown 18 films, and 28 in two years. There has been a wide range of themes this year although there have been a few on the financial crisis and corporate governance (Yes Men Fix the World, Dreamland, Debtocracy, Catastroika) issues in DR Congo (Blood in the Mobile, The Greatest Silence) on artistic and cultural freedom (RIP! A Remix Manifesto, Roadsworth, Cultures of Resistance) and waste (Manufactured Landscapes & Dive!). We remain hugely indebted to the speakers who come and make our events so special and hope to continue attracting others to come and share their expertise in the discussions. Our audience is slowly growing and we are really encouraged to see new faces at every event. This is no doubt due to great connections with a range of friends, such as NECTER NIReS and the International Development Society. Cinema Politica received in May a Santander Community Engagement award which will help sustain activities for the coming years. The best way to keep CP going however is through audience donations – so please bring your friends!! November 2012

20th annual Kalapremi Ganesh Festival

10:30am - 5:00pm, Saturday 29th September
20th annual Kalapremi Ganesh Festival
Lamplight Arts Centre

You are cordially invited to attend a day-long series of events celebrating the birth of the elephant headed deity Ganesh. 29th September 2012 will see us delivering our 20th consecutive festival. Starting at 10:30am, it promises the usual mix of fine food and exceptional performance, and we would love for you to be a part of it.

The 2011 Ganesh festival included a taste of all the values Kalapremi hold dear, beginning with the Pooja and including a group of multicultural poets, a disabled former trumpeter, Indian dance and a band composed of refugees and asylum seekers. We held origami and rap workshops and offered a sumptuous Indian buffet lunch.

This insight into how south Asians celebrate with the Ganesh festival is something that has gained national prominence, not just local significance, and now we have extended the programme to include ALL kinds of diversity it is becoming a very special day. At all times, and with all of our projects, we encourage active participation and welcome questions.

For 2012 we have booked a performer who we are sure are going to make the day that little bit more special. We will be pleased to welcome Aneesh Vidyashankar, a 21-year-old prodigy on the violin, to the Lamplight Centre. Vidyashankar has brought bliss to a wide variety of audiences, from spiritual gurus tosoftware giants, corporates to connoisseurs, for the last 12 years. Vidyashankar regularly performs for diplomats, foreign delegates, and leading hospital groups. Doctors consider Aneesh’s music to have a relaxing and therapeutic effect. In December 2011, at the Global Meditation Conference in Vizag, India, nearly 35,000 souls meditated through Aneesh’s violin melody for 2 hours – generating vibrant positive energy.

For lunch we are delighted to offer a sumptuous south Indian banqueting experience courtesy of Chef Vijay and his team:

Further entertainment will come courtesy of dance Guru Mrs Pani – performing herself for the first time in recent years to give a true taste and flavour of Indian dance.

Please come and support this important event in our calendar. September 2012

Tickets: £8.50 per head
Children 5-12 yrs: £5.00 per head
Family of 2 adults and 2 children: £20.00
Tickets only available from the Lamplight Box Office: 01207 218899

Newcastle College: Sustainability Road Show launch

Is it possible to make a smoothie from scratch while riding a bike? Can you really navigate your local neighbourhood by gravity defying acrobatics alone? Newcastle College students took on these and many other sustainability questions during a special Road Show.

The sixth form students staged a major event, the “Re-Newcastle College: Sustainability Road Show”, at Rye Hill Campus on Thursday March 15, featuring a wide range of activities which raise awareness of sustainability issues. The event also celebrates a role for the college with RCE North East.

Deborah Johnson, Head of Geography and Environmental Studies and Rachael Little, Sustainable Communities and Environments North East (SCENE) Coordinator, at the college are working with RCE North East on a number of local sustainability projects which then link to other regional centres of expertise around the world backed by a United Nations initiative. Deborah said: “Essentially what we are doing is looking at global sustainability objectives but applying them in our own local community.”

Visitors were able to take a turn on the “Cool Green Smoothie Machine”, which enables cyclists to generate enough power to run a smoothie maker while simultaneously burning off as many calories as their drink contains.

Other Showcase attractions included: Environmental Awareness and Climate Week stalls, dance performances by TILT, a range of businesses run by young entrepreneurs and information about student-led project on global maternal healthcare,

Rachael Little, said: “This event provides a great platform to demonstrate how committed to the college’s sustainability agenda our students are.”

The college adopted a sustainability strategy in 2010. It is accredited to the UK Government’s Carbon Reduction Commitment Scheme and makes returns to DEFRA on its annual energy consumption.

SCENE is a project that runs across Newcastle College giving both students and staff opportunities to support sustainability, corporate social responsibility and carbon reduction, through volunteering for both local and global charities and has been an RCE North East partner project since its launch in 2010.
