Last night

Galvanize 2006 had an energetic start last night at CCA7. A crowd of several hundred turned up to meet the artists and see documentation of their work, to watch a series of artists' films, to hear Ataklan perform (joined for one song by surprise guest Sheldon Blackman), and to generally have a good time at the smashing launch party. Everyone took away a neat little leaflet with a schedule of events, map of locations, and bios of everyone involved, unfolding to reveal a Galvanize poster on the reverse.
