The title International Art Festival Manchester sounds rather grand for a one night event but organisers make no apologies, as they have galvanised a unique happening, bringing creative people from diverse communities and backgrounds onto one stage...

"'A lot of different flowers make a bouquet'; and isn't that why a bouquet is so beautiful?" they ask "We believe 'Yes', and what else could be a better proof of this than Manchester, 'Britain's city of languages', where around two hundred different languages are spoken.

"...We gathered the most exciting acts from Manchester to put on a show about what Manchester means to them" they add "So if you like our city just as much as they do, your place is here!"

So, the International Art Festival Manchester happens on Friday 18th May between 7pm and 11pm at the Nexus Art Café, Manchester, opened by the Women Asylum Seekers Together Choir.

Also appearing are Lindsay Munroe, a local alt-folk musician, Ilona Krieva from Latvia who will be performing a drama piece, Joanna Brown, a singer/songwriter from Northern Ireland, Annie Morsi, a 23 year old cognitive neuroscience student and poet, Kofi Gyamfi, from Young Identity, a spoken word artist and instapoet, and Alicia Grace Swaby, a musician from Kent who is studying in Manchester.

They are all going to be creative about what being in Manchester means to them. And they'll be joined at the close by The Belly Dancing Society of the University of Manchester, which has members from Venezuela, England, Spain, Myanmar, Italy, Oman, Lithuania and Ghana.

All proceeds from the night will go to go to Child.org, a charity that is dedicated to give every child an equal chance in life.

OVER £100,000 SALFORD PARENT SCHOOL FINES NOT GOING BACK INTO SCHOOLS

Star date: 15th November 2018

CASH-STRAPPED SALFORD SCHOOLS NOT BENEFITING FROM PARENTAL FINES

A Freedom of Information response from Salford City Council has revealed that during the year 2017-18, £118,920 income was received from parental fines but didn't go directly to help cash-strapped schools in the city. Instead the money went to 'support council services generally'.

"I think the money should go back into education as the lack of funding is clearly apparent" says parent Mandi Lee, who put in the FOI request.

SALFORD CITY COUNCIL TO FINALLY TIGHTEN UP ON PUPPY SELLERS

Star date: 14th November 2018

NEW REGULATIONS MEAN TIGHTER CONTROL OF ANIMAL BUSINESSES

New laws on the sales and keeping of animals mean that Salford City Council will be forced to tighten up on regulating puppy sellers and animal keepers through new national regulations.

One of the biggest changes is that a puppy at a breeder's "may only be shown to a prospective purchaser if it is together with its biological mother", and that inspections of premises are to be carried out by a qualified inspector, rather than the Council's Environment Health Team.

SALFORD FIRE HAZARD BLOCKS IN PENDLETON WON’T BE SAFE UNTIL 2022

PENDLETON TENANTS ARE FOUR YEARS FROM SAFETY

The nine blocks of dangerous flats in Pendleton, owned by Salford City Council and managed by Pendleton Together, won't be safe as buildings until 2022, according to the latest accounts posted by Pendleton Together Operating Ltd.

External cladding work, the accounts state, will be completed by 2021 but other internal fire safety measures won't be complete until 2022. Meanwhile, the company recorded a loss of £23.5million last year, and adds that the "cost of further works are estimated to be £35.5million".

PEEL HOLDINGS REFUSED PERMISSION TO BUILD HOUSING ON SALFORD GREENWAY BY SECRETARY OF STATE

Star date: 12th November 2018

SECRETARY OF STATE DISMISSES PEEL HOLDINGS APPEAL TO BUILD 600 HOUSES ON WORSLEY GREENWAY

This morning, the Secretary of State at the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government has dismissed Peel Holdings' appeal against Salford City Council's refusal to allow the company to build up to 600 houses in the Broad Oak area of the Worsley Greenway.

The Secretary of State agreed with the Inspector that "the proposals would impact negatively on the character and appearance of the Greenway". Noel Gaskell, from RAID, the community group that opposed the development, told the Salford Star "It shows want can be achieved when the general public put their minds to stopping developments that would cause huge problems to the residents."

SALFORD UNIVERSAL CREDIT CLAIMANT TOLD TO LIVE ON £47 A WEEK

Star date: 12th November 2018

'HOW AM I GOING TO MANAGE? I HAVEN'T GOT A CLUE...'

A Salford Universal credit claimant has been told that she must live on just £47 per week, or £190 per month, after 'migrating' from Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)... "How am I going to manage? I haven't got a clue" she tells the Salford Star.

This latest disgusting poverty setback comes on top of the shock of her father dying from a heart attack while waiting for a DWP appeal, after being told he was fit for work. His case, in retrospect, is being heard by an upper tribunal this week.
