The Nearly Project

How do you feel about the things you’ve nearly done in your life?

Do you feel bitter regrets or blessed relief? Which close shaves and near misses do you remember? Who do you tell about those quirky / funny / sexy / sad / mad / bad / weird things that didn’t quite happen to you?

“Chris Meade is an artistic explorer. It’s great to see his work come to such vivid life. The Nearly Project is fascinating, playful, serious, wide-ranging, truly thought-provoking. What Didn’t Quite is beautifully written.”  

–  David Almond, author of Skellig, My Name is Mina.

In the transmedia fiction WHAT DIDN’T QUITE, Nearlyologists Carraday, Freya and Jamie gather examples of ‘Nearlies’ which they help people to acknowledge and celebrate, turn into actions or dissolve into the Nearlyverse.
