This Weekend: secret photographs and plotting

Hello everyone,

Just wanted to let you know about a couple of things happening at the weekend which promise to be rather splendid. Be lovely to see you there

Loiterers and friends are invited to take pictures that capture Secret Manchester this Saturday 20th February. Our work will contribute to an exhibition and archive created for Re-Imaging The North West, a project of New Mornings Old Streets – a collaborative media venture exploring what community media means and how the region should be portrayed. see

Everyone is welcome to contribute, regardless of your experience or ability and whatever you want to document. We’ll be meeting in the Cornerhouse cafĂ© at 12 noon this Saturday before setting off to take pictures. There will be an opportunity to borrow a camera and pick up technical tips and ideas if you need them, and we’ll be back at the Cornerhouse about 3pm if you would like to join us later. If you can’t make it into town but still fancy sharing some photographs please email high res jpegs as soon as possible. If you need a bit of inspiration there are some wonderful images on the LRM flickr group.

The LRM are also creating a Peoples History of Hulme walk as part of Single Cell’s Finding Zion residency. The event will happen on Sunday 7th March and we are looking for help to create something truly spectacular

Do you have any memories, stories, theories or thoughts that you think should be woven into our walking tapestry? Or are you a performer, artist, poet ranter or raver of any kind that would like to be part of the performance? We also need people help make props, rally troops and or act as a steward. You don’t need to be from Hulme and you don’t have to speak in front of anyone if that’s not your cup of tea.

We’ll be meeting to plot the Hulme shenanigans in The Britons Protection on Sunday (21st February) at 3pm, afterwards beer permitting we’ll go on the rather intriguing Hulme Art Trail that I’ve been leant a rather confusing map of. Please do come along and share your thoughts on Hulme and how we can make March’s first Sunday our most marvellous ever.

For more information or to share your thoughts on any of the above please email or call 07974929589. Be warned my keyboard is broken so if you text i apologise for replying with a game of hangman.

Take care and hope to see you soon
