Hello Crumb list readers,

just a brief note of apology that the CRUMB website is temporarily  
down... as we gear up for a busy few weeks.

Information about the symposium can be found on the website of the  
Contemporary Art Society: 

Information about the postgraduate training days can be found on the  
website of CultureLab: 

and all other information about the book launches and the birthday  
party can be found on the website of the AV Festival:

We'll let you know when we're all back online, but come see us in  
person in Newcastle / Gateshead instead!
