"Tell the story you want to tell, not the one you think we want to hear. We love originality. We love seeing work that challenges us and gets its claws stuck in our mind. Nothing does this to us more than work that comes from the gut, work that begs you to see it through to the end. We want your gut stories, not your fluff." - Not Deer Magazine, USA
"Abid Hussain, Diversity Director at the AHRC (Arts and Humanities Research Council), says: “How many would-be working-class artists, artistic directors, choreographers, composers and curators decided to enter accounting, legal, medical and engineering professions instead?” The Alchemy Spoon aims to demonstrate that this talent was not lost but waiting for a reappraisal of priorities, an unleashing of latent creativity, waiting for its time." - The Alchemy Spoon, UK
