The top ten things I did in 2012

a rusty background with 2012 printed on it.2012 has been an amazing year – and a very busy one. It seemed worth taking a step back and trying to identify the top ten things I did…

  1. Filmed, blogged and delivered PUSH ME and Total Permission for The Space (and so happy that we’ve won an award!) – do check out www.pushmeplease.co.uk if you’ve not done so yet for the full story of this amazing project
  2. Spent a fab week at Watershed, Bristol at the Playable City Sprint – learnt so much about play, people and collaborative working
  3. Watched the family do the Sports Relief Mile on the Mall, on my first day of my three month secondment with Comic Relief – great to feel so supported and so excited at the same time
  4. Ate at Heston’s Fat Duck in honour of my husband’s birthday – Best Meal Ever. A real theatrical event.
  5. Chaired discussion panels for Southbank Centre and the British Council at the life-changing Unlimited Festival in September – so proud.
  6. Went on fearsome and awesome study visit to Hong Kong with the curatorial support of Winnie Fu (do email me if you want a full copy of the report of my trip – joverrent@mac.com)
  7. Blogged for Huffington Post,  Guardian Cultural Professionals Network and kept up my own blogging here – other writing too. Ohh I do like writing.
  8. Applied for and got a Dance Digital Associate Artist position working with the wonderful Luke Pell for 2013-14 – nice, new scary thing to do!
  9. Gave a TED x talk at TED x Tallaght – thanks Jo Magan for giving me the push.
  10. Graduated from the Clore Leadership Programme, having made an amazing group of friends, supporters, collaborators and more (and learnt loads too)
There. So on the last day of 2012 I’ve now got a head full of memories to take me through the day and into the night. And after that? Roll on 2013 – here’s to doing things differently each day!
