After last years preparatory phase, the full work will be launched by in 2007 as Futuresonic’s contribution to the inaugural Manchester International Festival.
The full project is a combination of of local collaborations, and performances involving people from Moss Side, Ancoats & Clayton and Levenshulme, and a networked installation in Picadilly Gardens.
The project begins with a local event in each ward, organised in partnership with local residents and designed to celebrate local talent and creativity. These events feature a wide variety of local musicians and artists, with food, family activities and maybe the odd bouncy castle too. See the calendar for details of each event.
All the performances and activities at these events will be recorded and used as the building blocks for the installation.
