    ARTS KARMA THANK YOU PARTY TO EVERYONE THAT PLEDGES
    If we raise our target, I will put on a party in London to thank everyone who pledged their support for My Beautiful Black Dog. The main purpose for this party is two things; firstly a massive CHEERS SALUTE YAMMAS THANK YOU for parting with your hard earned cash and supporting a new piece of art, but most importantly for everybody to connect with each other if you want to. I'm a believer in Arts Karma (Laura Keefe's and my approach to work-shopping art). The party will be geared towards meeting future artistic collaborators, new mates and just have a good old knees up with glitter, frunning (a sport I invented for a healthy mind: a mixture of dancing and running) and the My Beautiful Black Dog team.
    An invite will be sent to EVERYONE who donates ANYTHING to this. Let's pop this party!
