<p>I am currently working on a project in Elephant and Castle , South London. I will be working with artists Gold Peg and Pelucas to install a temporary go-kart track in an housing estate caught in a 'regeneration' limbo. We will then be working with young people from the area to craft a series of sooped up soapbox type gokarts that we will race and celebrate at a big closing/opening GRAND PRIX EXPO in the estate.&nbsp;</p><p>see www.releasethewolves.org for more info.</p><p>there is a wefund profile to raise moneys&nbsp;<a href="http://wefund.com/project/release-the-wolves/p33286/">http://wefund.com/project/release-the-wolves/p33286/</a></p><p>I am really excited about the project, but also well aware that i am going to be facing a bunch of challenges when trying to negotiate the treacherous terrain of liaising with local authorities, development agencies, and the legislative hoops and hurdles that doing any sort of 'authorised' activity in public space demands. Amid all this i want to keep a clear focus on the needs of the young people and the communities i am working with, as well as my own. Edgeryders appear to have created a platform where those who are not prepared to fit their ideas into the deeply flawed contours of the current economic/neolibrralll logic can discuss the issues and possibilities that this position inevitably holds. I think it looks like a useful place, and i hope to be able to contribute and benefit from the discussion to be better equipped to deal with the world.</p><p>I am not particularly agile with the internet. my comfort zone moves within solid surfaces. i like drill bits more than internet bits, so please forgive me when i make blundering mistakes.</p><div id="myEventWatcherDiv" style="display:none;">&nbsp;</div><div id="myEventWatcherDiv" style="display:none;">&nbsp;</div>
