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.

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?
