Re/Place - Stories that are right up your street #2

My latest site-specic project is this: Re/Place - Stories that are right up your street

Always wanted to go behind the scenes in Longford Cinema or Cosgrove Hall? Ever wondered what the Sedge Lynn used to be or why Chorltonville is unique? Never knew about the Chorlton Park paddling pool or what happened to the Chorlton Green church whose graveyard and lych gate still remain?

As part of Chorlton Arts Festival 2015, six critically acclaimed and award-winning writers each sharing an interest in psychogeography and urban exploration have penned pieces about ghost places and the re-appropriation of spaces. Sarah Butler, Sarah-Clare Conlon, Claire Dean, Kate Feld, David Gaffney and Nicholas Royle will perform their site-specific short stories and present postcards from the past at this special event. Supported by Arts Council England.

Contact me if you have your own stories to share: - we'd love to hear from you and incorporate them if we can.

Proof, Manchester Road, Chorlton. Wednesday 20 May 2015. Doors 7.30pm. Free entry.

Flyer Fiction: The Cornerhouse Project #7

I was at Cornerhouse on the last official day of business, Thursday, and noticed the bicycle stands had been flyered. How apt - my Micro Commission was all about flyering the bikes, so it was a nice little reminder! Just thought I'd share. Back soon with more on the Re/Place project for Chorlton Arts Festival 2015.
