My new class giving a peak at my creative process! skl.sh/matty
There is a woman who walks through the streets randomly singing opera. Wherever she goes she is singing, sometimes under her breath, sometimes loud enough for whole blocks to hear. Some people think she is deranged, some think she is inspiring. I was compelled to sit down with her and have a short conversation about Why. I only had an hour and a half with her, but she struck a cord enough that made me buy a ticket to go see my mom, heh. I decided that I would put this online and hope to inspire people to go embrace their mothers and children. She's also a very prime example of why not to judge people by their eccentricities.
Music by the brilliant Greg Haines "183 Times" greghaines.wordpress.com/

Café Indiependent is based at 169-173 High Street, Scunthorpe and is open 10am - 10pm, Monday to Saturday. Funded by the Big Lottery, Café INDIEpendent is a coffee and music house. So, they sell good coffee, lovely cakes and deli quality sandwiches on speciality breads during the day. There is an interactive arts area for children, and they open until late.
Evening time is about the atmosphere and creating a place to enjoy time. The music gets turned up, the food is local goodness to share and it’s a place to ease yourself into. The bare brick walls are an exhibition space, there is art, live music, things to see and do. They love to host evenings where you bring a bottle. They want this to be something different, the kind of thing you see in the bigger cities.
The pubs and clubs have got their place but there’s nowhere they feel draws people in for any reason other than because it’s there. So they thought they would build one, and that they could do something good for others while they do it. Because that’s the other side of it. Café Indiependent isn’t about profit. They are helping young people gain skills, experience and training.
And there's more...upstairs... a Social Enterprise Incubator Unit and training space where young people, projects, enterprises and events are developed. An ideas workshop.
Pop in for a coffee or a bite to eat, the team at Café Indiependent love to welcome customers into the wonderful space they have created.
We worked with the American Heart Association on a series of short stories to raise awareness for the leading cause of death in America; heart disease. This is the story of Annemarie, a 20-year old college student who is full of life and possesses a vibrant personality that is contagious. At first glance you would never imagine that she faced a daunting challenge for a majority of her life, waking up everyday to the uncertainty of surviving the game of life.
Annemarie is a symbol and representation of the many heart disease patients and survivors across the world. They all share an incredible inner strength and courage that is an inspiration to all of us. Her story touched us on a personal level and served as a reminder to be grateful for everything that you have in life.
