Take Five with Lucy Beaumont

Lucy Beaumont of Pocket Arts and Open Spaces on Catching Fireworks blog

Lucy Beaumont is a freelance Arts Producer and Founder of Pocket Arts.  This is a community arts organisation working to create and promote local community engagement projects and sustainable networks for artists, designers and makers.  They partner with local authorities, community associations, charities and traders networks to bring an accessible cultural offering to local areas, providing cultural regeneration through the animation of unusual spaces.  

A major initiative is the Open Arts Space, artist open studios for West London, which will take place 9-18 October 2015.  It will give local artists, community groups, galleries, schools and colleges the opportunity to showcase their work within the very spaces in which they create it. Exhibiting works in  unique and intimate spaces such as attics, classrooms, cafes, living rooms, shops or garages, is an affordable and social way to show off artistic creations.  If you are an artist of any medium or work with creative groups based in Kensington, Chelsea or Fulham, you can register to take part before mid-July.  

In your professional life, what is the single best thing about what you do? 
That every day is different! And the people. I love working with creative people and arts enthusiasts. I find that whether it's visual artists, curators, dancers, writers, fellow producers and programmers or even visitors, there's always so much good energy and dynamism about the projects we do. 

Do you have a creative hero / heroine and if so, why? 
My mum. She is an artist, an amazing print maker, and it always amazes me the precision and logician processes often required to creative something seemingly abstract and random. She seems pattern, inspiration and beauty everywhere in every day life.

What piece of advice do you wish you had been given at the beginning of your career? 
To get a good accountant and filing system in place from the word go, would have saved so much stress!

If you hit a creative block, what is your top tip for getting through it? 
Put on some music and do something different - pay a bill, hang the washing out, dance around the room or get out and go for a run.

And finally, for fun, if you were a shoe, what type of shoe would you be and why?
Ooh tricky... maybe a pair of suede cowboy boots. Go with anything, dependable old friend, bit retro, up for adventures in the wilderness or dancing the night away.
