Castlefield Gallery Launch Pad: Powerhouse Liberation Movement exhibition

Manchester Left Writers have been selected to undertake an exhibition as part of Castlefield Gallery’s ‘Launch Pad’ series, chosen by Jerwood Charitable Foundation Director Shonagh Manson.

The Powerhouse Liberation Movement will bring together film, installation, music, performance and a new publication. MLW core members Natalie Bradbury, Bob Dickinson, Steve Hanson and David Wilkinson have been searching the city (dubbed the “economic powerhouse of the north of England” by Manchester City Council) for ‘free’ spaces: spaces where notions of commonality, free expression and liberation are discoverable and can be accessed by all. MLW have recorded their exploratory journeys across the city, from the Gay Village and ancient earthwork the Nico Ditch to the satellite towns of Stockport and Rochdale. This has resulted in a series of lo-fi ‘Notebook Films’ documenting places, encounters and experiences. These will be displayed alongside maps, notes, photographs and objects found and made during the process of making the films. MLW have also commissioned a critical essay by Dr Gavin Macdonald, Lecturer in Art History at Manchester Metropolitan University.

During the public preview on Thursday 5 May (6-8pm), and repeated for Museums at Night on Thursday 12 May, MLW will perform new poems to accompany the work on show. In addition, the quintet Vocal Harum (of which MLW writer Bob Dickinson is a member) will perform a set of a cappella songs about buildings. MLW will also discuss and answer questions about their work and the exhibition at a public event on Saturday 14 May. The exhibition continues until Sunday 15 May.

In excess of 10. Each time I have reset the time, but the issue remains consistent. In addition, as rolex replica sale in my previous email, the watch strap is also faulty. The pin at the hinge on the strap rolex replica worked its way loose. Would be grateful if you could provide an address for me to send the watch to be mended or replaced. The replica watches has since stopped again and today, the 27th Oct, I have removed the watch and now await your further instructions. Can you please rolex replica sale that I will shortly receive my products. I have had no indication that this has been dispatched as I requested Rolex Replica Watches which are 'in stock' so they should have been sent by now and a shipping/tracking number sent. I can confirm I have received the order and am absolutely delighted with them. I will be ordering again and have put the items into the replica watches sale basket in my account online, but would like you to confirm that the next order will be sent out in a more timely fashion.
