Quarterly Reviews

Ahem. So far, they’ve been six-monthly, but quarterly remains my aspiration. I’m leaving the first I produced (Q2 July 2021) open to non-members to get a sense of what Adequate Projects is about.

The most recent is accessible only to members. Click on the picture to read.

Upcoming. As a rule, livestreams take place on the second Tuesday of the month. I’ll email details in advance.

The idea is for me to share work in progress. You can hide in the background and send messages in the chat, and if you miss it you can watch a replay.

Replays. These two livestreams took place on the same day. If you watch them both, you can see how my thinking about this project developed / didn’t:

Note: I’m going to post more replays here.

Art Prints

As a member you will receive one A5 art print from me every six months. (If you haven’t received it, let me know!)

You also get 20% off any other artwork, including original commissions.

Office Hours Calendar

New members, old-timers: I love to meet you, say hello, and talk about anything you like. I’ve created a Calendly page just for Adequate Projects members, so you can book a one-to-one with me.

I’m unsure how long I’ll be able to do this as the membership grows, but there should be enough slots to go round, for now – if you don’t book more than one session in advance.

The Calendly page is here. It should be fairly straightforward, but if you have any problems let me know.

Whizzy Group

The Whizzy Group is a small group of people supporting each other in getting good work into the world. We meet online every Wednesday lunchtime (UK), for periods of three months at a time, with months off in April, August and December.

The Whizzy Group started before Adequate Projects, and it was invitation-only. I’m not looking to expand it, but people do drop out / come back occasionally, and I’ll always offer places to former participants and Adequate Project members first.

During each three-month “term”, you get as many one-to-one sessions with me as you like, and access to a wonderful bunch of creative people.

1 ↩︎ Adequate Projects This is the new name for the membership / patron programme that was originally called Special Projects. I’m aware that the change does not suggest an improvement (!), but that’s not why I switched.

The word “Adequate” amused me when I came up with the title of A Modest Book About How To Make An Adequate Speech, and it still amused me when I used it for An ADEQUATE Podcast. This brings even more of my work under the good-enough umbrella.

Another reason for the change: Special Projects is the name used by somebody else for something very similar, and I copied it while I was setting up my own. I told him, and he didn’t mind, but I wanted to change it anyway.
