The Cheetah and The Stag

David Carden serenades us with the amusing story of The Cheetah and The Stag.

Arthur Dooley

BY BOB GAUNT
@ VOL 5 ON JUN 13, 2013

Bob Gaunt tells us about the artist Arthur Dooley, a janitor turned sculptor. His story seems influenced by writer Jacques Rancier, whose book reflects the redistribution of the social order, which Dooley immitated in his change from low value employee to independent artist. Gaunt explores Dooley's stations of the cross series, which evoke a mix of traditionally christian and labor-conscious communist thinking.

Pecha Kucha Manchester vol 5

Hi there, Well what a night. It was our first event at hosts in Manchester and we had a great turnout. 60 people came to listen to a diverse range of presentations from musicians to art lecterers. Bird watchers to science students. One of the best things about the night was that many people have never heard of the concept before. They had no idea what to expect and went away with a great feeling and promised to tell their friends about it. we're already working on the next night which will be at the end of Summer so keep coming back and details will be up soon.
