Gabriel Fine Arts is screening Monday's Child by Lynn Barnett, a short film about a Nepalese baby girl. Her father was a subsistence farmer and her mother looked after the home and her children. The film traces the first year of the baby's life and the struggles this family faces to survive. The importance of traditions and rituals in the lives of rural Nepalese people is brought out in the film.This film sheds light on mother and baby relationships in a culture where traditions and rituals still play a strong part in daily life.

Sandy Layton specialises in early life psychoanalysis having worked for many years as a child psychotherapist and as a teacher in Infant Observation. She will be introducing the short documentary and have a discussion with the audience after.

A business is like a small state – incentivizing its employees to work and profit, and taxing them accordingly. It provides a structure, a framework, for useful activity to take place and then protects and compensates where necessary. But a business is supported first. It is lent to and enticed to trade through tax incentives, cheap borrowing and active lending by the state proper. It is, in a sense, induced or seduced into business. Only later, when it is secure, does a business support in turn – its employees or the community from which its employees came from. When it does, its employees thrive; when its employees thrive a business thrives. This is a virtuous circle. The community that created the conditions and the employees for the creation of business should therefore be supported.

How? Corporate social responsibility. It is not just an abstract social duty but an active interest of businesses to support the communities they exist in. An art space is an anchor for the community and for businesses (art is big bucks after all). The artists and the art these spaces play host to bring local and international communities together to celebrate new ideas and innovation. It offers opportunities for local residents, families, groups and businesses to experience difference, creativity, and the value of ideas; to create networks and build relationships that improve the areas we live and work in.

Art is international in outlook - it brings people, ideas and investment from all over the world. This cultivates public spaces, improves the food we eat, the things we do for leisure, the way we work, think and relate to each other. It supports happy people who create happy communities, families and businesses.
