NEXT EVENT VOL 23

TICKET LINK: pknmcr23.peatix.com

Come and enjoy another night of interesting, fast-paced from some of the north-west's top creatives, thinkers and doers all taking the PechaKucha challenge: 20 images, 20 seconds per image, no stopping.  

The theme for this event is 'reflection'. Come along if you want to hear stories about the school that teaches refugees how to code, the organisation that is tackling loneliness and isolation in Manchester and the forum where you can discuss death in the digital age. Are you interested in how virtual reality is affecting our behaviour? Or how a desire to be a horse can lead you into advertising? Or how you can your work published easily? Then this is the event for you.

We'll be at the Fairfield Social Club, home of the excellent GRUB Street food market, next Piccadilly train station. It's our biggest space yet! As ever, we'll be running activities in the breaks. This time, you can look forward to another challenge to make art from Elaborate Club and take part in our inaugural 'rock, paper, scissors but with plasticine' competition (with prizes!) hosted by Designasaur. And, if we can find a vehicle big enough, we'll have the riso printer from MARC the Printers.

We have a line-up of ten amazing speakers. Want to know who they are?...

Warning, This Course WILL Change Your Life

BY DUNCAN CRAIG
@ VOL 19 ON SEP 28, 2017

Listen to an engaging and inspirational journey from Duncan Craig, a psychotherapist and the Chief Executive of Survivors Manchester.

Survivors Manchester is a Greater Manchester based charity offering therapeutic and advocacy support to boys and men affected by sexual abuse, rape, and sexual exploitation. Duncan started the charity in 2009, when he identified a gap in support provision for boys and men, and continues to develop new services today, most recently across the male prison estate.

As a qualified accredited trauma-informed psychotherapist, Duncan’s personal and professional experience of sexual violation has presented him with the opportunity to be involved in a number of national inquiries, projects and forums, including The Stern Review; the National Rape Working Group; and the Office of the Children’s Commissioner on the Child Sexual Exploitation in Groups and Gangs.

Chemical Connections

BY BETH TAYLOR
@ VOL 21 ON MAR 01, 2018

Beth Taylor asks:

How do parents form bonds with their children?

Why on earth do women go through childbirth more than once?

Why is it more common for women to want to cuddle after sex than men?

How can I make other people give me their money?

How can I make people trust me more?

Why does my mum love the dog more than me?

When can I legally play with a woman’s nipples?

Making friends and growing beards

BY CHRIS TOMLIN
@ VOL 21 ON MAR 01, 2018

For some of us, meeting new people sucks. Small talk. Struggling for shared interests. Forgetting names. But when we share our stories, we can connect on an emotional level. And that's where the fun begins. Chris Tomlin talks about telling stories, making friends and growing beards.

New Horrorshow Rabbit

BY FAT ROLAND
@ VOL 21 ON MAR 01, 2018

Why swap a career in bookselling for a life of moloko, ultraviolence and a bit of the old in-out in-out? Writer and performer Fat Roland long felt a connection to the works of Anthony Burgess and A Clockwork Orange. This is the story of how a former bookseller found a horrorshow (good) rabbit (job) at the International Anthony Burgess Foundation, the famous author’s estate, archive and event space based in a converted Victorian Manchester mill.

A Journey Towards Unity

BY HAMID SHAHI
@ VOL 21 ON MAR 01, 2018

After experiencing meeting, interviewing, collaborating, and working with some inspiring individuals in Japan, Hamid Shahi decided to reach out to his friends to initiate a global collaborative community with other amazing creative people who are interested in joining together and contributing to projects in pursuit of a higher purpose.

At Unify Design Art, we believe everyone is creative and we think of designers and artists as people who exhibit the attitude, approach and abilities of forward thinking. We believe that creators around the globe can support and inspire each other to make positive change in their local communities. 

For us it’s not a question of thinking or doing, but what to think about and how to do it through unified systems and strategies.

The Magpie Designer

BY JONATHAN BRIGGS
@ VOL 21 ON MAR 01, 2018

Making Connections (dot to dot thinking) 

Exploring design ideas and how tacit knowledge influences how we produce work as designers and makers. For Jonathon Briggs, it’s in the fabric of your thought process, having a poor memory helps too! It allows you to see something new in everyday objects and re-interpret their meaning. 

How do you look at the ordinary everyday and turn it into meaningful stuff, then navigating how you post-rationalise this into a commercial product? How does this work in a creative studio, does it liberate everyones thinking or become an insular creative process?
