Francois Matarasso reads Making Nothing Happen, a talk he first gave in September 2016. He has revised it in the light of current events.
In this episode Francois Matarasso reads some Old Words that he wrote a long time ago, and feels have become relevant to him and us once more.
Making Nothing Happen began as a talk that Francois gave on 3 September 2016, at the 5th Anniversary of Tandem, in Berlin. The Tandem Cultural Partnership promotes cooperation between artists and cultural producers in Europe and neighbouring territories including Ukraine, Turkey, the Middle East and North Africa. Francois revised it early in the darker year of 2022.
As part of the Old Words series within a series, Francois will make the printed version of this essay available for download as a pdf at his Parliament of Dreams website at the same time as this podcast appears online.
