FUTURE ARTISTS IN EXILE

One of the few forums in the North West where creative people can let loose, Future Artists is planning a full day of events to celebrate its first year of being, with an Unconference, a Picnic, a double bill Film Show and a late night Party at FAC251…

THE UNCONFERENCE 11:30am free

Here's the statement of intent…

"With social and political ideas in a state of flux, what effect does this have on the artists, storytellers and the creative minded in this new media age? With communities via the world-wide web solving problems by creating tools both in the online and offline worlds…and with mass communication via social networks meaning that 'stories' and the experiences of humanity are now reaching way beyond the campfire, does this make the old way of working in media still relevant today? What is the alternative, is there one?

"And what effect does this 'new wave' of thinking have on the institutions built FOR the creative communities in the North West? With the likes of Media City, BBC North, Vision and Media etc, budgets cut, redundancies looming, all on the eve of a technological and creative revolution…with new story telling tools such as 3D, social media, and transmedia storytelling taking route, can the old way of 'doing' keep up? And if so how? Are we on the eve of something new? And what do YOU think this could look like, and what skills can YOU bring to YOUR community?"

Big subjects that will be up for discussion at the Unconference which starts at 11:30am at the Zion Arts Centre.

For those who can't get there, a conversation is currently happening on Twitter (use hashtag #futureartists)
The Unconference is free but you need a ticket to get in by registering here…

Once registered, free entrance is also guaranteed for the Picnic and Party at FAC251.

THE PICNIC 1pm-5pm free

Musicians, poets and artists will be doing their thang outside the Zion Arts Centre and everyone's invited. Just bring a blanket to sit on, some food to share and your gob to discuss creative stuff. If the weather is top, the Unconference and Picnic will merge.

COMEDY DOUBLE BILL 5pm £6

Two comedy films to light up the day are being shown at 5pm in the Zion Arts Centre – Bog Standard, a very funny short movie shot on location in the toilet of the old Colgate Factory in Ordsall (see here for more details), and Beyond The Pole, an acclaimed feature length film about the exploits of two mates, Brian and Mark, who set out on the first ever carbon neutral, vegetarian, organic expedition to the North Pole…with no experience whatsoever. Described as Withnail and I on ice.

£6 tickets can be ordered here and include free entry to the Party…

THE PARTY – FAC251 10pm onwards. Free

Anyone who goes to any of the events during the day and is registered gets free access to the after event party at FAC251.

ARTISTS TAKE UP RESIDENCE IN CONTROVERSIAL URBAN SPLASH SALFORD DEVELOPMENT

Star date: 15th October 2018

ARTISTS TO CHALLENGE HOUSING POLICIES WHILE LIVING IN LUXURY HOUSE

'You can't even stop your car to take in the breathtaking sterilization of the place...'

Last week, artists moved into a stunning Urban Splash house in the new Springfield Lane development as part of a year-long project called Tenancy in which they will explore 'what it's like to live in a city negotiating rapid change' and 'who is benefitting'.

The Springfield Lane development, being branded as in 'Manchester', has no affordable housing and avoided hundreds of thousands of pounds in planning fees. Can the artist project, actually sponsored by Tom Bloxham and Urban Splash, make a difference?
