Action Report: See Hear!

"See Here... the Public Drawing Experiment" was held on Friday 30th May 2008 in Stevenson Square in the Northern Quarter of Manchester

This event was part of Manchester's Second International Psychogeography Festival "Get Lost" Get Lost is organised by the LRM (Loiterers Resistance Movement) who regularly invite people to "...loiter with intent to make Manchester Wonderful"

Jenny Trigg contributed to the Festival by holding a one day "Public Drawing Experiment" on the traffic island in the middle of Stevenson Square, opposite Fred Aldous.

The idea was to demonstrate that people see the same things differently.Passers-by were invited to stay on the traffic island, look around until they saw something that interested them, and then draw it in their own way for an exhibition.

Over eighty people took part, and their drawings will be exhibited at "Nexus Art Cafe" on Dale Street from 17th June to 1st July....Come along and see the results, and draw your own conclusions!

With thanks to Fred Aldous for their support of this event, and thanks to Jenny for the report. The picture shows the portable studio and 4 of over 80 participants
