International Art Festival Manchester
Friday 18th May 7pm-11pm

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.

COUNCIL UPS PRICE OF BUILE HILL MANSION PROJECT TO OVER £20MILLION AS PLANS MET WITH SCORN FROM COMMUNITY

Last night, a packed stormy meeting of the Claremont and Weaste Community Committee left Salford City Council in no doubt that any plans to build houses in Buile Hill Park as part of a deal to restore the Grade 2 listed Mansion will be met with fierce opposition.

Salford Council's Assistant Director of the Environment revealed to the meeting that Salford Red Devils Foundation, one of the driving partners of the project, hadn't even signed the controversial Memorandum of Understanding yet – and that the £1.6million cost of restoring the Mansion would have to be met with £1million a year to sustain it, giving a figure of over £20million.

FORGET ABOUT JOBS, HOMELESSNESS AND AFFORDABLE HOUSING – ROLLERBLADERS IS WHERE CITIES' REGENERATION IS AIMED!

'Jobs priority "just doesn't echo in the room any more"...'

Never mind jobs, homelessness and affordable housing, all Manchester and Salford regeneration is, apparently, aimed at attracting rollerbladers, Eddie Smith, Strategic Director at Manchester City Council, told a Built Environment Network conference last week; and that the jobs priority "just doesn't echo in the room any more".
