Sometimes it can get confusing – mostly for me – whether I have my Still Ill OK or Nice Time Arts hat on. That is actually a good thing; it’s because Vicky and I have created a situation where we work flexibly and accessibly (but still bleedin’ ‘ard) solely on making art and creativity accessible […]

We look forward to seeing you this Sunday for the much awaited – due to two postponements – Pen Fight & Still Ill OK mash up Zine Club, run by Nice Time!

Dates and times for the first cohort have not been confirmed, […]
