“Yebo.” Most people don’t notice it right away, but yebo is my constant response to anyone who is trying to get my attention. For future reference, it’s a Zulu word and it has the wonderful dual meaning of hello and yes.  

This a rambling sort of post, but today I decided to do something slightly different and actually talk about myself. Or to be more exact I have decided to talk about my home.

The Poor Priest's Hospital on Stour St, where the Canterbury Heritage Museum is located, has experienced decreased footfall year on year. In order to respond to this, Canterbury City Council asked the public about proposals to revitalise the building. On Wendesday 29th March, I went down to see their final decision as well as hear out some of the arguments for and against the proposal. For information on what was said at the meeting, check out my twitter @PMGueye for a summary of the evening.

It is a fact in the art world that once an artist has fallen into the unfortunate trap of mainstream appeal, they are rarely treated seriously again.
