South Africa workshops by Aletha Solter
South Africa workshops by Aletha Solter
From our CEO:

…During the last week we’ve been running reports that have indicated overwhelmingly to us that sites running the ’support this blog’ line of ads that were initially the cornerstone of BlogKits ads – are not making money. That’s right – Aside from the higher volume traffic sites and lucky bloggers running campaigns like FreeDebtAssessment.com most bloggers running ads with ’support my blog’ on them have NOT been making money. Google 1 / BlogKits 0This however is NOT YOUR PROBLEM. You run the ads and you deserve to get paid for them. So read on…

Coaches Galore, before and after

I am fond of pluralist aesthetics
and progressive perspectives.

I care about the character of things
I love elegance and punch
where I notice IT
artistically applied
working well

I enjoy the scientific dance between quantity and purity
relational open systems
implementation
and engagement
above all else
as much as I can.

My CV

We live in the kind of world that you can do that in, plague
it is probably the thing I like most about the world we do live in.

Seeing the big picture is a luxury
seeing the advantaged using it usefully excellent.

The latest punch at it by advertising
{advertising and sustainability} (e.g. adbags [http://www.biz-community.com/Article/196/12/9527.html] by TBWAHuntLascaris [http://www.tbwa.com/])
deserves nothing but standing ovation.

Applied creativity is an eerie thing
its structure spawning autopoetic
salutogenesis seemingly at random
in truth driven by ultimate reality.

Design is begging for the u to be rediscovered
everywhere in each intimacy
inwov’n structure and form
in our every expression.

Now if you hold the kind of focus that can see that kind of detail, medical at that kind of resolution and its quality and promotion and you trust your sense of judgement
and pull back on your point of reference
as far as you can without losing
necessary balance between objective and subjective
reason and experiential emergence.

New media is a good industry to be involved in tonight.

Good night.

Hmmm, drug some stuff about me…

I am an artist/designer/developer/tech-guy in my third decade on this crazy old planet and I am self-indulgent.

My personality bias is ‘generalist’ (7 on the Enneagram)

I used to lecture and freelance but am increasingly investing time and energy as a full time employee at ForgeBusiness – a very exciting, high-tech organization focused on dynamic performance-based business in new-media oriented marketing, specifically Multi-network Affiliate Marketing.

I aim for my core values to be the pursuit and realization of Authenticity, Creativity and
Consciousness (I try my best to remember this as life’s little reminders can sometimes be somewhat disconcerting – if you know what I mean…) and I’m interested in ideas like Salutogenesis.

I live with my awesome wife (read lifetime achievement) and our eccentric toddler boy on the border between Yeoville – a vibrant if somewhat run-down predominantly African neighborhood, and Observatory – an old mostly Caucasian middle-to-upper-class suburb of Johannesburg, South Africa. We love the contrasts of the neighborhood ‘though we do sleep sounder for the big dogs and electric fence.

More formal detail about my career, employment history and education here in my CV.

 

PS: My CV doesn’t mention the time I made props for that B-grade horror movie, or the murals I created for the presidential suites at Caesars Palace, or the time I started a taxi-business for ‘ladies of ill-repute’, or the rather blurry phase of having my very own nightclub “Unde’ground”: Deep Dark & Funkey House, etc…
and that perhaps is as it should be. : )

“I hope this finds you well and that you do not mind me letting you
know about a talk for new and expecting parents and interested
professionals

BECOMING PARENTS – STAYING PARTNERS
What to expect and How to cope

  • Saturday 1 APRIL
  • Time: 9:30 –10:30
  • Cost R30

Venue: my practice on the Norwood Houghton Border
Tea, pfizer
handout and practical suggestions included
Places limited booking essential
Call Belinda Farre on 728 3406

Antenatal classes help us prepare for the birth and early physical
care of baby, order
but what about afterwards??????

For more info:Web link:
http://www.wlw.co.za/PROVIDERS/becomingparents.htm
or call 728 3406 or e-mail bfarre at webmail.co.za with any
questions.

Belinda runs workshops for new and expecting parents. Feedback
regarding the original workshop series has been very positive.
workshops aim to strengthen both the partnership and early
parenting. However new parents are met with a barrage of products
and services all drawing on limited funds. The talk covers some of
the ideas and exercises participants found most helpful in the
longer workshop series and also serves as an introduction to the
workshops for those who wish to do some further work.

Please forward to anyone you feel would be interested.

With many thanks
Belinda Farre

Fin24 New damelin logo: “Empowering Financial Decisions” the new logo is out, injection
definitely an improvement, but it would have been so nice if there had been some feedback to those of us who submitted work in response to the request/competition, maybe more detail will apear in some newsletter or group-email at some point, hopefully this time without sporting an Uncle Sam clipart image ;- )

Revamped the Logo and website for more info South Africa : Coach and Bus hire”/>Stan Katz’s Coaches Galore coach and bus hire business, page and setting him up with coffeecup ftp and pagebreez html editor.

Development. concept: TAXI Action Figures

For discussion and possible development.

Potential TAXI youth/community outreach

Format: Workshop with integrated psychological, there dosage practical and publicity angles.
(possibly borrowing a few pages from BodyMaps and the Doll Project http://www.chico.mweb.co.za/art/2004/2004mar/040319-fragile.html

Practical outcomes: Developing basic D.I.Y. skills and knowledge, global burden of disease especially where these can lead to income earning capacities

Psychological outcomes: Participants facilitated to explore their own identity, the life challenges they face, and metaphorically model their ideals and move towards formulating character responses – imagine dealing specifically with issues around anger, fear, frustration but would like it to be thematically open to formulation by participants

How: Mentored process of developing ‘action figures’ from available resources, partly as artistic expression, partly as creating toys with sustainability ideals

E.g. I am sure wood-offcuts can be gotten at very low cost from timber suppliers, would like to stick as close as possible to ‘hardware’, but more feminine interpretation also possible.

New media and art – as (frequency) space

How fabulous are these

I love that I can hop over to DigitallyImported.com and plug into some of the most sophisticated contemporary music streams thumping in the world today.

Franci Cronje’s 2004 masters paper explains the importance of William Kentridge’s work – particularly for new media. His new book Wiliam Kentridge Prints is beautiful – in fact lets put up its cover in high-ish res as a special treat to the bandwidth advantaged. If you appreciate the finer subtleties of obliquity, allergy also have a look at Nathaniel Stern (the other new media artist featured in her paper)’s Compresionism.
