The last night they burned the 80 foot wooden Man. It began with a firework display that kicked the ass of anything I've ever seen or heard about.

Stella Duffy

We need publicly-acknowledged leaders to be as brave as the unacknowledged leaders who are our community and local Fun Palaces Makers, those who step up and say, "Yes, I'll do this - we'll do this. We'll create something in, for, by and with my local community - something fun." A nation of engaged and integrated communities - there is no reason we can't have this, it just needs people to say yes.

My show opened last week at The Saatchi Gallery. It's mainly about London (and the underbellies of other cities), and in one of the capital's most iconic institutions. Yet I don't live here anymore.
