So it’s the New Year & we have a new instalment of WYC Makes, our programme of free workshops for 15-25s.

WYC MAKES: LYNGUISITIVE

Ninjas. Detectives. Poets.

The game is afoot; the gate is open for us to follow wherever our questions lead…

Over six sessions we will explore poetry & movement, slipping through crowds and searching through collections to discover new ways to create and approach art.

Expect to look at image, the art of storytelling, different types of poetry & rhymes, body movement, sound & location. Anyone with an interest in writing & performance will find this a great opportunity to gain new knowledge, build confidence and develop their set of skills.

All workshops are running on a drop-in basis, so no need to book ahead. Sessions are informal and all levels of experience are welcome – even if you’re completely new to performing and spoken-word.

Please go to the gallery’s Clore Learning Studio (ask at the front desk for where to go).

Manchester: HAELOS live at NIGHT & DAY CAFE

March 05, 2016 at Night & Day Cafe in Manchester.

Some things come together immediately. Others… take a little time. HÆLOS – known individually as Arthur Delaney, Dom Goldsmith and Lotti Benardout – fall into the latter bracket. But the way the music comes out sounding, you know it couldn’t have happened any other way. Each one of their vividly cinematic tracks seems to map the long journey from desperation to relief, stress to sanctuary – the basic dynamic of all urban life. If London tends to be a meandering, alienating hometown, there is a looming sense to HÆLOS’ music of a band – of three people – having found each other. Eventually.

Address: 26 Oldham Street, Manchester
