Tuesday 20th March

GMCDP is hosting a community screening of Defiant Lives, which tells the story of the rise and fight of the disability rights movement in the United States, Britain and Australia.  .

Featuring exclusive interviews with people who’ve led the movement over the past five decades, the film weaves together never-before-seen archival footage with the stories of disabled men and women as they moved from being warehoused in institutions to fighting for independence and control over their lives.  Once freed from their imprisonment, disabled men and women took on the big charities, criticising the use of celebrities to beg on their behalf.  They chained themselves to public transport around the world and demanded access “to boldly go where everyone else has gone before”; and they lobbied for support to live ordinary lives in the community with family, lovers and friends.

Defiant Lives is a film full of extraordinary people who put their lives on the line to create a better and very different world where everyone can participate.

Sunday 25th March

New for 2018… we will be running Street Edge Series, doing a different sporting event / occasion every month to mix up activities and get people learning a variety of sports!

For March we will be hiking up the Kinder Scout in a nod to the mass trespass of Kinder Scout in 1932.

The Hike is open to all abilities, we will be getting the 10:40 train from Piccadilly to Edale and then the hike should take around two and a half hours then we will all be going to back to the Old Nags Head in Edale for a Sunday roast then back to Manchester.

Friday 30th March

Welcome to OPEN HOUSE!
An inclusive alternative night for deaf/ disabled/ LGBTQ+

Worried about access? Anxious about strangers? Can’t find a chair? Expensive PA tickets? Bright lights and big noise? BSL User?

Worry no more!

Open House is the brain child of some friends who are tired of living with mental and physical health issues and having to compromise on some of the finer things in life- namely socialising, having fun and listening to live music! Set in the large rooms of the Klondyke, expect some house party vibes with some banging lady Dj’s and acoustic set/ open mic in the “kitchen”.

***This event is a fundraiser for Partisan and any profits will be donated towards making their venue accessible***

Saturday 30th September 2017

The Tories are heading to our city for their conference from 1st-4th October. On 1st we will take to the streets to show them what we think of their austerity, rampant inequality and corruption. We’ll show them that we hold them responsible for the gross injustice they promote, for the deaths of disabled people as a result of their welfare to work policies and for the sinking living standards of all but their friends, the super rich.

Before that though, we come together to celebrate our cultures of resistance and grassroots alternatives.

The Commoner’s Choir (http://www.commonerschoir.com/) will perform songs about food riots, inequality, the cultural harrying of the North, Woody Guthrie, the Calder Valley floods, homelessness, refugees, the printed word, and the rhyming possibilities of Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt… stitched together with soundbites, found sounds, and words of wisdom.

The choir will be joined by DJs with protest party vibes.

Door prices:

Low waged – £2.50
Waged – £5
Solidarity price – £10

Letters To Morrissey

On Tuesday night I was invited to the opening show of the play “Letters from Morrissey ” by Gary McNair.

Not being a huge Morissey fan I was a bit apprehensive about whether or not I would enjoy it but I have to say I was very surprised.

Gary executed a fantastic performance. It was funny, moving and kept my attention from start to finish. It was loud, it was quiet and you didn’t have to be a fan to get it. Would definitely recommend it as something different to go and see. It’s not overlong either at 65 minutes.

Tickets £12.50 (full price/ concessions available).

Fast Forward Festival: Build Commons, Build Counter-Power
Thornbridge Outdoors Centre, Derbyshire

Laying the foundations for a post-capitalist society will require the building of diverse forms of social organisation, an emphasis on building non-capitalist forms of consciousness, and finding new sites of struggle. For Plan C, this currently means pursuing the combined strategies of social strike, directional demands and radical municipalism, but we want to learn from your perspectives, strategies and modes of organising.

At Fast Forward 2017 we want to delve further into these ideas, to discuss, imagine and develop what it means to build commons and build counter-power.

We want you to join us for three days of talks, workshops, parties, childcare, food and commoning!

Tricking the Impossible: word and type: Penny Rimbaud and Bracketpress

MMU Special Collections Gallery,
3rd Floor,
All Saints Library

Tricking the Impossible

This exhibition examines the close, collaborative relationship between the author Penny Rimbaud (co-founder of the highly influential punk rock collective Crass) and typesetter and book designer Christian Brett. The exhibition draws on extensive archive material from the Bracketpress archive held at Manchester Metropolitan University Special Collections. Brett’s collaborations with Rimbaud employ many expressive and conceptual typographic tricks, creating visually exciting designs for some very challenging texts. Along with published material (novels, essays, poetry and music) the exhibition also includes working designs for as yet unpublished works.

Bracketpress is an independent radical publisher of books, pamphlets and limited edition prints co-founded by Christian Brett & Alice Smith. The exhibition is part of RANDOM Archive, a collaborative project with Bury Art Museum & Sculpture Centre exploring text and type.
