PUSH ME has been an extraordinary journey for all those involved in the process, as the blogs captured here illustrate.
But don’t just take our word for it. Read what others have to say – from an early article on the Huffington Post about Dick Penny’s initial resistance to The Space, to mentions on the Guardian Cultural Professionals Network, and being selected as the first of the Arts Council’s top five picks of The Space, the project as a whole has gained positive support and attention. Its been reviewed in The Telegraph, the National Media Museum Blog, and via sites such as Shiny Potato Entertainment and Female First.
An article for NESTA on PUSH ME and its process will shortly be published and a link created.
