Things have moved on, and now it is clear that we are not just huddling together to sit out a blizzard. This tier contuinues to help me make things free at point of access online. I have developed longer term ways of doing this though, and the resources page will be more of an idex to help people find them.

About Simon Lidwell

After restructuring I have three main projects - if they spark your interest or if you have followed a link from one of them, please consider helping make them happen.

 The Floating Monastery is a YouTube channel full of stories from history 

Quartz is a partnership project with St Johns church in Dumfries. It uses the arts to help people develop the skills of #SensingSpiritualty
The Cluaran Historical Interpretation Project is a project which helps bring heritage to life. We make things, set up viking camps and arrange for school pupils to benefit from the professional services of a wide range of creative people
By supporting me on patreon you can become a part of this, and adapting to Covid and climate change by taking it online.

I'm developing opportunities to make heritage more accessible through the digital world, as well as creating my own artwork drawing on this experience. You will also get  access to patron only content such as downloads you can print and colour in, or behind the scenes views of stories to watch and listen to.


Goals
1% complete
Recently, everything has changed for a lot of people. With the need to change formost in (most) people lives my goal has been to make my art available online. Like here:

I've also set the The Floating Monastery channel up on YouTube to make stories accessible (since people are staying in their houses to protect the vulnerable).
