SATURDAY 25TH JULY
MINERS COMMUNITY ARTS & MUSIC CENTRE
I'll be leading a workshop to the Artists Against Austerity event at the Miner's in Moston, exploring how austerity affects asylum seekers.
Participants are invited to create hampers for asylum seekers, refugees and migrants to welcome them into Manchester, in a show of solidarity against the government's institutionalised efforts to make the UK a 'hostile environment' to migrants and refugees.
Please bring anything you think should be included in a nice gift basket to help new arrivals settle in, and as much cellophane/ wrapping paper, ribbon and baskets as you can!
There will also be a workshop from the Baker's Union, and music from Fly Casual, The Second System, Walk Like Fool Does and Some Young Lad.
Entry is £3 on the door.
