Standing in one of the most famous places in London made me think. The square has played such an important part on all of our lives – it's a world famous site, somewhere we all naturally gather. Think back to when we won the bid in 2005 or moments last year with everyone watching the large screen with the live relay from Beijing.
Last Saturday felt like all of those moments rolled into one! The square was packed with crowds dancing, watching ariel performances, beautiful dance pieces and the coolest bands and musicians. I was really blown away with the talent and range of work of the UK's disabled and deaf performers.
Standing there in the sun it was also a moment when I had a glimpse of the future. You'll be pleased to know I've not taken up reading fortunes, but for London 2012 we have a real opportunity to work in partnership with events like Liberty and build on their success.
We are currently working on a new project called Unlimited as part of the Cultural Olympiad to produce new work by disabled and deaf artists leading up to and during the Games – watch out in Trafalgar Square and a space near you over the next three years!
It was so great to meet so many different people throughout the day. Our stall was constantly busy with genuine interest in volunteering, the Paralympics, access facilities for the Games and of course how to get tickets. You name it people wanted to know!
My colleague Ray chats to a Liberty festival visitor:
If Liberty is how we celebrate in 2009 just think of what we can achieve in 2012. Thanks to everyone for such a great day – see you there next year!
