Welcome to the sixth edition of the Topaz magazine
Since the Topaz magazine began it has drawn an increasing number of subscribers
both nationally and internationally interested in reading about the exciting
projects around the Template Network. Many have asked to know more about these
activities and so from the next Topaz we will begin to feature more in-depth
articles about them. We are always very interested in your feedback and any
ways in which we can develop Topaz for its readership.
As you will read in this edition, the Template Foundation UK moved into its
new headquarters in Barnet, North London in February. In our next publication
we will be letting you know about a simple associate membership system by which
people can come to regular events that we will be holding at the new centre.
This will mean that as well as being able to read about various projects within
Topaz, you will also be able to attend workshops and other events involving
The Topaz continues to try to represent projects throughout Europe and in this
edition we have an article about a major colour exhibition in Denmark, a detection
network in Holland, teachers in Germany and a unique movement and exercise programme
called Electrobics in England. As editors, we enjoy the opportunity we have
in coming together and producing the magazine as well as having the time to
exchange about the excellent activities happening around the network. And in
a time when there is so much international and inter-cultural tensions, we are
inspired by the mutuality and common values that we share as people from different
lands. As an old Ethiopian proverb states, ‘When spider webs unite, they
can tie up a lion’.
Thank you for your continued support of Topaz,
