Sleigh Bells Jingling, Ring Tingle Tingling Too

As the sleigh bells have faded into the distance and the mistletoe safely tucked away for another year, we wanted to do a small review. 2018 was a great year for ELREM as our first tentative steps out into the world were greeted with genuine enthusiasm and good will. Any success we achieve is built upon the fantastic clients we have! Without the hard work, inspiration and plenty of arguments, we can not help our clients achieve the small steps which lead to the giant gains, we all want.

The Access All Areas photography exhibition was an absolute home run! It was extremely difficult and fraught with tension in the build up but the rewards and new connections made were truly amazing.

The Being Her girls go from strength to strength, more followers, bigger and better collaborations and plenty of smiles. From the outside people only ever see the good times but inside the ropes you feel the frustration and the stagnation. Patience is a virtue in this ‘century of self’ that usually brings rewards. Keep doing the right things and success will follow…

Signlync, our cornerstone, the reason ELREM began is a slow burner and often goes quiet for periods of time but rest assured we are like ducks on a pond. Calm on the top and furiously paddling underneath. We hope to have some exciting news for you in February or March, so hold onto your hats because once it happens you’ll be wondering how you ever managed without it!

Finally, just before Christmas India Morse came back from her year long travels and adventures in Australasia. India Morse or better known as YouLeanMeUp is an Instagram sensation in the Wellness and Nutrition Industry. She is fighting for better inclusion in the fitness Industry, being deaf has many barriers but the fitness industry is severely lacking in any understanding or willingness to adapt. Beware, India is coming, she won’t accept sorry excuses, you will be named and shamed.

Enough of the past, let’s look forward… As old lang syne becomes a memory and the dread of actually fulfilling those drunken New Year resolutions begins to hit home, rest assured we’ve got you covered! Access All Areas is coming back bigger and better than before, if you can just make it through the dark and depressing February we will have updates about the exciting Access All Areas project which will be hitting amazing locations in London and including new people to see, to taste and to touch.

Watch out for Signlync rubbing noses with the multi-national conglomerates of this world (Gü Dopran never does small scale, it’s all or nothing for her).

YouLeanMeUp will be blogging and IGing its way to a screen near you. India Morse is full of energy and the drive to succeed, you’ve been warned! She’s feisty and wont take discrimination or lack of consideration laying down.

Being Her continue their ascent as if they were born to it. If you don’t know them or haven’t been following these multi-talented ladies what are you waiting for? By the way check out Twinstitute BBC2 Wednesday 8.30pm. I did say they were multi-talented…

I’m signing off for now but I can guarantee 2019 will be fireworks! I will keep you posted, I promise.

Love you and leave you and until the next time my faithful readers, arrivederci.

What an Event!

Apologies for all those that missed last night (25th September). The Access All Areas private view event went off with a bang. The pre christmas party season started off with pictures, people and plenty of wine, always a good combination!

ELREM’s first major event went like a dream, in no small part to Leman Locke Hotel, Printspace and many other people I should mention but am too excited to tell you all how it went down…

The portraits by Levent and were beautiful and I’m sure I saw a tear or two from those reading the biographies. The video brought nods of agreement, smiles in satisfaction and applause in appreciation.

The event started at 18.30 and we swilled our wine while chatting away with new and old friends alike. Around 19.30 we went upstairs to view the inspirational stories behind the participants involved in Access All Areas. Stories of triumph and disaster but most importantly endeavour and desire to succeed. Around 20.00 we came downstairs and everyone huddled up either on a plush chair or sparse floor but it didn’t matter anymore, everyone had bought into the evening by now.

What’s left to say? I heard someone whisper, but hold your horses we finish as we begun… Spreading a message, people will comprehend before they leave our event! What does Access All Areas mean? It means Access to All Areas of Society for the deaf and disabled community. Access to work, access to education and most important, access to Society. Access to the world outside your community, the hearing world that we all take for granted and others have to scrape and fight not to be ignored and overlooked.

As the Being Her twins finished up their rousing speech and the encapsulated audience finally understood! Hope was imbued, smiles were plentiful and friendships had been made. The original concept for celebrating International Week of the Deaf had been achieved and surpassed 10 times over.

As light became dark on our event and we slowly drifted away to the many different corners of London and the Home counties, an inner sense of relief and pleasure washed over us all as we had reversed the trend, dark had become light and hope had been restored…
