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.

Passionate opposition speeches from the community covered all issues, from infrastructure to pollution, affordable housing to loss of Grade 1 agricultural land and the unstable site proposed for development. Not one single person present spoke in favour of the proposals.

SALFORD LADY MARGARET MCHALE TURNS ONE HUNDRED AT THE BROUGHTONS

Star date: 20th January 2019

FROM HANKY PARK TO LITTLETON ROAD VIA LANCASTER BOMBERS AND THE 'MONKEY RUN'

Salford's Margaret McHale turned one hundred this week as her six children and relatives gathered for a huge party at The Broughtons Care Home. Born in Hanky Park, Margaret moved around central Salford, to Ellor Street, Warburton Street and finally to Littleton Road, as part of the slum clearances.

A proper Salford lass, Margaret worked on Lancaster Bombers during the war and as a machinist in Strangeways, and, as the family partied with residents and staff, there were a zillion anecdotes that will echo with loads of local families.
