Week four of the course has begun, and there is electricity in the air, like the moment of combustion as an engine springs to life.

Between thorough and focused talks with officials from Liverpool-based creative powerhouses Brighter Designs and Everyman & Playhouse, the ten of us tirelessly planned and prepared the foundations of the research phase of the project.

Week five approaches, less than two thirds of the course remain and there is still much to do, but we enter it in even greater confidence than before.
