Axis Animation creates online universe for TV drama Kiss Me First “Animation is considered by many the domain of children’s and family audiences, we’ve long believed that modern audiences will embrace animation as a storytelling medium just like any other.” Axis Animation is the creator of the digital world featured in the TV drama Kiss Me First. The leading UK production studio builds the online universe of Azana, blending live action with CG across animated content for a new virtual reality thriller for Channel 4 and Netflix. Created by Bryan Elsley (Skins, Dates), Kiss Me First is an innovative thriller based on Lottie Moggach’s debut novel. When her mother dies, lonely

girl Leila has to learn how to manage living on her own. Leila has a digital avatar, Shadowfax, and when she logs onto the virtual reality game Azana she feels truly alive. It’s there that she meets the mysterious Mania aka Tess and discovers the secret paradise called Red Pill. But Adrian, the leader of Red Pill, tells her she has to be invited to join and blasts Shadowfax out of the game. The next day, at Leila’s workplace, Tess/ Mania turns up - in real life and Leila wants to know why.

As World Cup fever takes hold, Skypark tenant Bala Sport shines a spotlight on the workers that make Fairtrade footballs

The World Cup always focuses global attention on the beautiful game and this year’s tournament in Russia was no different. But spare a thought for all those match balls that were used - and how they were manufactured. Skypark tenant Bala Sport shines a spotlight on the workers forging a path to bring Fairtrade to football.

Bala Sport’s range of high quality football, rugby and futsal balls are proving popular in schools and with an increasing amount of ethically minded grassroots clubs throughout the UK and beyond making them their ball of choice too. Milan club AS Velasca prides itself on its unique artistic qualities as well as the technical aspects of the game. Bala Sport is delighted that its Fairtrade match and training balls were chosen by the Italian club.

It seems like the world goes football daft during the FIFA World Cup tournament. Players with sky-high salaries battled it out in Russia in the beautiful game’s most prestigious event. Sports ball manufacturers who usually churn out around 40 million footballs a year increase that amount to around 60 million during world cup years. If you want to get your hands on the actual official match ball, the Adidas Telstar 18 will set you back £130, it’s a top-notch ball of course. But does anyone ever think about who’s making our footballs and how much they’re paid?

Closer to home, multi-award-winning women’s team AFC Unity in Sheffield is also determined to use Bala Sport Fairtrade balls to spread the word about ethics in the game, and do things right. “We find we don’t have to be preachy about things; using Bala balls has made our players and opponents alike think about where the footballs we all play with come from, and if we can all do some good with that.

Bala Sport won’t be making a world cup ball anytime soon. FIFA doesn’t allow any other certification mark to appear on a ball alongside their own FIFA marks. That’s only a minor frustration to Bala Sport co-founder, Angus Coull though.

“It’s sometimes very difficult to get quality alongside ethics, but we’ve found it with Bala. Now we get to play football and make a difference while doing it, which is what we’re all about.” Jay Baker, Manager, AFC Unity.

“Although we make and test our footballs to the same standards as FIFA balls the key thing for us is that we put the workers first. As well as ensuring at least the minimum wage, safe working conditions and access to union representation, we pay an extra 10% cash sum, not to the factory, but direct to the workers through democratically run Fairtrade committees.”

Bala Sport also provide a customised ball service for clubs, school and corporate clients. The minimum order quantity for the standard custom template where customers can choose colours and have 4 panels featuring their own logos and text is 100 balls. A fully bespoke service is also available with a minimum order size of 200 units. During the last weeks of the summer term, switched on schools around the UK have been taking part in Fairtrade World Cup tournaments, guided by the Fair Trade in Football & Rugby Campaign. Pupils represented countries where Fairtrade products are produced and learned about how Fairtrade makes a difference in the lives of the men and women who make the all-important piece of kit, the ball.

Through these says Coull, the workers in all parts of the production process, including hand stitching, have a say in how this cash fund is invested. “Typically projects such as free eye and other health checks and subsidised glasses, free school books and backpacks for workers’ kids, free transport to and from work for those living in rural areas and free safe drinking water are funded. Workers at both factories Bala Sport use Sialkot have used Fairtrade Premium funds to help build water purification plants, these have been built outside the factory gates so that anyone in the community can access free, safe drinking water, not just workers” says Coull.

So whether you are enjoying watching your favourite team play that crucial match, or having a kick about yourself remember there’s a Glasgow based co-operative that’s supporting developing country ball workers and making sure they get a fair deal and a better go in life. www.balasport.co.uk

governs treatment of disabilities within the workplace, including the provisions of the Equality Act 2010. Under the Act, it is a legal requirement for employers not to discriminate directly or indirectly on the basis of disability, one of the protected characteristics and to make ‘reasonable adjustments’ where possible.

The Disability Confident Committed scheme encourages employers to sign up to a number of commitments and to demonstrate that they provide an inclusive and accessible recruitment process, offer interviews to disabled candidates, anticipate and provide reasonable adjustments, support existing employees with any long term health conditions to enable them to stay in work and to participate in at least one activity that will make a difference for disabled people. As a leading provider of Employment Law, HR and Health & Safety services, Peninsula frequently advise businesses on the relevant legislation which

Ceridian hails first tech event a success

Although most employers do not deliberately intend to discriminate, the application of the legal requirements does require careful consideration on a case by case basis and the employment tribunal statistics for the last quarter of 2017 demonstrated a 45% rise in disability discrimination claims lodged compared with the previous quarter.

Launch Foods Opens in Skypark to help feed Glasgow’s children A

huge welcome to the wonderful team at Launch Foods, a brilliant not-for-profit enterprise, that is on a mission to feed the City’s primary school children in communities that need it most, by providing 7,500 meals over the summer holidays and school term for children who would otherwise go hungry.

As part of the effort to feed local children, Skypark is donating space to Launch and also calling for companies here to help them put a stop to childhood hunger.

Launch Foods sets out to solve the issue of food surplus going to waste, by prepping 350 free children’s meals everyday. Over the Summer Launch is working with the charity Achieve More Scotland, that runs sports activities, by producing healthy nutritious free food for the kids participating in these free events. As part of the effort to feed local children, Skypark is donating space to Launch and also calling for companies here to help them put a stop to childhood hunger. Launch is urgently asking for sponsorship for or a donation of a vehicle that can tow their Airstream truck to distribute food to children across Scotland in the coming months. Please look out for regular Launch updates, that will give details on how you or your team or business can get fundraising and donating or give some practical help. Craig Johnson who runs Launch Foods said, “It’s 2018 and there is no excuse for this situation, our kids are going hungry and as a community we must work to show our kids we care. Every day across Scotland, our children spend their evenings hungry without a proper meal and the situation gets worse over summer with the absence of school meals. Meanwhile, food producers throw away surplus food. We felt we should do something to connect the two. “We ask suppliers to donate surplus food from which we create a menu of

12


delicious treats that kids love, such as burgers, chicken wraps, smoothies and pasta. Scottish kids were consulted on the types of food they’d like to eat and even created some of the smoothie recipes. All the food on the menu is healthy, packed with (sneakily hidden) vegetables, and is low in fat and salt. We even make our own healthy ketchup. In line with the socially conscious cause, all of the packaging is compostable and biodegradable. “Over the summer, Launch Food’s shiny silver food truck will be working with Achieve More Scotland providing in excess of 7500 meals feeding our kids that need it most. Beyond this, we will feed kids after their school day. Launch is a 365 day operation, it is not just for holiday hunger.” Craig finished, “The more money Launch Foods generates, the more kids we can feed – it’s as simple as that. If anyone feels they would like to contribute they will be feeding kids in Scotland. Kids you pass in the street, kids many of you will know. It’s Scotland’s kids and they shouldn’t be going hungry.”

Skypark ‘lifts the lid’ on new Piano Project Calling all pianists! Skypark is lifting the lid on the City’s Piano Project, a cause that sets out to put the ‘playfulness’ into work places and public spaces, by providing free-to-play pianos at a range of venues, and turning Glasgow into a city of pianos! All piano enthusiasts are invited to have a go and tinkle the ivories, with the arrival of the Project’s beautiful white baby grand piano – a recent star of the BBC drama ‘Ordeal by Innocence’ – with a new life in Skypark 1 reception area. Driven by the idea of bringing people together through music, Tom Binns started The Piano Project, a social enterprise that sets out to create opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to play the highest quality acoustic pianos in Glasgow and beyond. Tom said, “Our project is all about quietly embedding more opportunities for ‘playfulness’ into the fabric of the City. The interaction that can happen around these pianos and the opportunity for people to break out of patterns of behaviour that keep us stuck, and make some music, is one antidote to isolation, loneliness, social anxiety, the process of dealing with grief and loss. It’s all about playfulness as this helps bring a different, flexible, state of mind that feeds back into how we live our day. We hope that Skypark tenants will enjoy the chance to play as they go about their work.”

Ongoing health and wellbeing initiatives that the Piano Project runs, include Glasgow Piano City; that offers free piano tuition for people coping with isolation, loneliness and long-term health conditions. Playing it by Ear sets up acoustic pianos in public parks and spaces offering free piano lessons to anyone with an interest. The Piano Project in partnership with Galgael and KibbleWorks, are developing a new range of high-quality products, by recycling pianos, creating employment and reducing waste. Instruments are also loaned out to venues across the City for performances, events, conferences, festivals, workshops or private occasions.

16


The Piano Project’s baby grand piano at Skypark, will be open to tenants and the public from 7am-10pm Monday to Friday. Other participants in the project include King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut, Glasgow Royal Concert Hall and the Riverside Museum. If you’re interested in finding out more or donating a piano to be refurbished and used as part of Piano Project’s ongoing initiatives please contact Tom Binns on tom@glasgowpianocity.org or call 07940224365.

‘Selfie’ by Graham McKean

Satirical Artist Graham McKean hosts successful EXHIBITION at Skypark Graham McKean, the Irvine-based artist recognised for his highly collectable satirical and contemporary style has been showing his paintings in Skypark 1 this summer. The collection featured a selection of work including the iconic large oil painting ‘Helping Hands’ referring to people helping each other in business, something McKean feels strongly about. His pieces are often related to politics and business and are very current, with a touch of humour, the pastel ‘Selfie’ sums up the mobile phone generation! In 1996, after 17 years as a graphic designer, Graham McKean decided to commit himself totally to his Art and

As a result of his exposure to the art world, McKean has regular private commissioned work for both personal and corporate clients, which forms a large part of his business. His work has become highly collectible and is held in private and public collections worldwide.

A review by the late W Gordon Smith (Art Critic, the Scotsman) described the work of Graham McKean as a cross between the artists John Byrne and Stanley Spencer, but with an ‘interesting bite’.

Graham McKean said: “My paintings are inspired by the humour that I see in everyday situations and that are topical in the news, so it’s great to bring the collection to Skypark’s gallery walls, a completely different venue from a traditional gallery. I hope that people

Motivation: working out with friends or a group of like minded people helps to keep you motivated to regularly attend your class. Plus, it pushes you to work harder to keep up with the pace of the class. Accountability: if you just don’t feel like going to the gym some days it’s easy to talk yourself out of it when you train alone. If you attend classes, knowing that your class mates will wonder where you are if you don’t go, will keep you motivated to show up! That buzz! there’s nothing like it! Whether your group training is in a dance class, yoga, Body Combat or HIIT training, when the music is playing and you look around and see everyone working hard together, you get that ultimate buzz that training on your own doesn’t give.

So set yourself a goal this month to try something new and book one of our brand new classes. Pop into SWEAT! Glasgow today to find out more about our class timetable. 26
