|FUNDING - Once again MMINO have come to our aid in 2003 and so too has Bob Wilson of the Bleeding Heart Restaurant & Bistro in London. However we do need additional funds to focus on the Archive, the database, Information service and ofcourse to complete The Hidden Years Story Book - Part 1 - in the process of being coloured in; and Penguin Books are waiting. So any additional assistance in that regard would be greatly appreciated. We also have an exciting batch of CDR issues that are about to escape - so watch this space. The 2001/ 2002 report will be posted on the site soon and the budget will be available to any interested parties on request.
We would also like to acknowledge and thank all those who have contributed in the past, most notably The National Arts Council of South Africa, The Bartle Arts Trust, Terry Rosenberg, Rick Barber (Australia) and The National Lotteries Board. Funds for the HYMAProject have also been generated through 3rd Ear Music's Festivals, Concerts & Clubs & by the re-issuing of limited edition Hidden Years recordings - and of course by courtesy of Master Jack. We are working on the research & scripting of a TV Documentary and a proposed series of syndicated Radio Programmes; so any stories, photographs, anecdotes that you think we could add to our hidden history - Please drop us an eLine.
