Our good friends at Lifeshare (a Manchester support organisation for young homeless) are organising an exhibition and they’ve invited us, and several other similar groups, to contribute our arts/crafts. It can be anything – traditional painting, poetry, carving, film…whatever you like. If it tells a story about ADHD then that’s great (we’re having our own area), but it doesn’t have to – anything goes, as long as it’s not ‘threatening’ – vulnerable people will see the exhibition so a little tact is expected, but ‘tasteful’ nudity and strong language are not banned outright. If you’re not sure ask. You might even be able to put on a performance.
The exhibition will be on between April 10th-17th so arrange for your work to be with me before that, preferably by Friday April 3rd. The Venue is on the ground floor of 3 Piccadilly Place – it’s a large, well lit, room with bare breeze block/concrete walls.
Since the venue is supplied for free we aren’t allowed to put nails in the wall and electricity is only available for low power consumption items – flashing LEDs OK, 3 bar electric fires, no. If it’s not obvious how it should be displayed, or you have specific requirements, let it be known and if you want a description of your work (eg explaining something not obvious) we can have it laminated or stuck to a wall.
