Shedman has a number of planks in his platform, from impromptu workshops to special performances, from explorations of the best sheds in the local neighbourhood to artistic shed installations. No one has more experience of sheds!
SHED ASSEMBLY DAY (SAD)
If you’ve seen the film Witness you’ll know what a community-building activity raising a shed can be! Come and witness a grown man go through every emotion known to humanity and a few more besides as he tries to put up his self-assembly shed. Laugh till your knotholes pop! Then give him a hand! All assistance welcome!
SHED YOUR FEARS!
Open to anyone – a rolling creative workshop, exploring the multi-layered meanings inspired by the word ‘shed’ – or any other theme you choose.
Be part of the Shed Appreciation Society (motto: Who dares, grins!) Bring reminiscences, stories, photos, pictures, poems, postcards and anything else connected with sheds to create an installation all around the organisers' chosen theme.
Look out for Shedman on his Shed Quest round the local neighbourhood to find and explore some of the more amazing and unusual sheds. People can send him suggestions via Twitter @Shedman
Shedman often gives a presentation of the highlights of his time in the locality – giving a flavour of some of the stories he's heard and people he's met, and reading and performing his own work including any poems he may have written during his stay.
SHED AUCTION or RAFFLE
Shedman (or the organiser) usually arranges the donation of a shed from a local supplier which is raffled or auctioned over the project to raise money for a local charity or for the organising body.
