I Drew a Map
We are all born in the orchard. We all have a choice, do we eat the apple. This is your choice.
My map was a vision of an integrated public and private sector and community social enterprise. The main focus would be to equip our children with options in the local area.
The exhibition took you on my journey through Wales starting where I reside now taking you back to where I first crossed the border of Wales from England after leaving London.
We searched high and low to find products that would compliment our ideas and vision for the future.
It took shape
Trilby Pheasant’s product range starts small and then grows. It grows through the individuals that it meets and the individuals that want to be part of this. It is different – it is not a mass commercial “what products are they - get them on the net and sell”, it is a real sense of belonging that can only come from individual’s commitment to themselves, to bringing something forward as a piece of work and then to go through a process where Trilby and the pheasants can understand if that product wants to be marketed and if that is something that they would really like to happen.
Sounds a bit far out? No.
It is because if you have a corporate job or if you are currently out of work and lost your way, there is a talent within every one of us and most of us want to try something very different. Trilby Pheasant says “have a go”, “here is a platform” and “here is a way to do it”. “Here is a group of people who are prepared to sponsor you” and finally, “what have you got to lose?”.
