We met when our kids became friends.  The first exhibition we visited together was Anna Barriball's show at Milton Keynes gallery in Autumn 2011.  The boys were kept busy by a fantastic colouring book produced for a festival at the gallery earlier in the year while Edie, a few years older, was fascinated by Anna’s fireplace video work, which she said sounded like a giant breathing.  Since then we have visited many exhibitions, performances and events and have become accustomed to the pleasures (and frustrations!) of appreciating contemporary culture alongside our children: Edie (11), Oliver (8), and Marlowe (8).
