As our first history project we would like to gather all possible information about past NJC:s, if you have photos, momeries, videos of those, we would love to get them. It is history of all of us. We care about our culture.
I attended my first juggling convention in 86, which was the 2. Nordic Convention held in Copenhagen. And I have been to almost all of the conventions since. We organiced Nordic Conventions in Aalborg in 90, 92, 96 and in 01/02 (I’m not sure about the years, but can find out).
My material is posters, somethings from newspapers and some videos (vhs – I hope there’s something to be seen on them still…). At some of the first conventions a newspaper came out: The Throw Up Times. I might have one or two issues. Copenhagen television TV Stop made a program about Jugglers against Gravity at one of the early conventions – it is also somewhere in a box.
Things are in boxes around in my house and it may take som time to find it all, but I’ll start working on it now.
Nordic in Helsinki 2011 ? Date? We hope to be able to make a grouptour from Aalborg.
