21 Aug 1966 – 3 Dec 2014
Please come and help us celebrate the many aspects of Chris Seeley’s remarkably creative life: artist, teacher, ecologist, clown, writer, intellectual, ursophile, dog lover, bookaholic, sister, daughter, friend, partner, mentor, catalyst, designer…
We will be coming together for two days of exhibitions, installations, food rituals, music, clowning, storytelling, conversation, artful activities, sharing memories, poetry, quiet contemplation, and whatever else we can come up with. Do let me know if you have any ideas or would like to contribute in some way.
We’ve chosen to hold the celebration at Matara (where Chris and I got married) which is just 200 yards from Chris’s home in Kingscote village. It is also where her memorial stone will be placed in a wooded garden. Doors will be open between 11.00 – 20.00 on Monday 29 June and 11.00 – 16.00 on Tuesday 30 June.
Each day will offer a range of activities and you are welcome to come for one or both of them. There will be a “grazing bar” for tea, coffee and snacks throughout and something a bit more substantial at lunchtimes. Ask me for a list of local B&Bs and hotels if you need overnight accommodation. We are also hoping to have a “Skype Corner” for folk, especially from overseas, who can’t make it in person.
The event is by invitation and request. Chris had a huge circle of friends and colleagues and I’m bound to miss some of you by mistake so if you don’t receive an invitation directly from me, know that you too are welcome. Also please feel free to pass the invitation on to anyone else you think might like to come.
Please email me email@example.com as soon as possible if you intend coming (or think you might) and let me know on which day(s) so we can plan catering etc.
