Nothing much is coming my way lately, and I'm not getting much work done in fact, too busy being given conflicting information and struggling to pay the bills.
I wasted a lot of time recently applying for a job as a gallery assistant at the National Centre for Craft & Design, which was not successful. It stated that "due to the high number of applications we cannot give individual feedback if unsuccessful", so I asked of course, because I'd really like to know why Im not considered for work with all my experience!!
This week I feel trapped in a punitive situation, put in a box with no way of escaping, and things are only going to get worse. I can't see anyone helping me out of this trap.

I am currently struggling with some dire personal family issues that can only be resolved if I am paid for my work as an artist. And I don't have the time or the energy to waste applying for ACE funding, or any jobs or opps that involve lengthy form filling and box ticking. I'm tired of it.
I had hoped to go to the 3D printing workshop at the UoL today, but when I enquired, it was fully booked.
