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with published material (novels, essays, poetry and music) the exhibition also includes working designs for as yet unpublished works.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.

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!

8th June 2017 What’s On

Sunday 11th June

On June 11th a faction of fascist group the English Defence League calling themselves “Gays Against Shariah” will be marching in central Manchester. The event initially had a single focus: to use the anniversary of the horrific Orlando massacre (in which 49 mostly Latinx LGBT people died) as a weapon against Muslim communities in the UK. After the 22/05 Manchester Arena bombing, the EDL subgroup swiftly rebranded their event as ‘Unite Against Terrorism’, jumping at the opportunity to further capitalize on tragedy to push their islamophobic and racist agenda.

We must mobilise and counter ‘Gays Against Shariah’ and the rest of the EDL. We need to stand tall and united in the face of fascism, declaring loudly that they do not speak for us, that we will not let them enact their campaign of hatred, intimidation and violence against Muslims, migrants and people of colour.

We need to resist cynical attempts of the far-right to exploit LGBT grief and struggle to violate other marginalized communities. We want to send a clear message: Islamophobia and racism are not welcome in Manchester, or anywhere else.

We organize this counter-demo as a broad LGBT+ coalition. All are welcome to join us on June 11th, drive the fascists out of Manchester and strengthen the solidarities between local communities.

Central Manchester: 11am-5.00pm

Former Chumbawamba front man Boff Whalley reveals the music that informed his politics and shaped his outlook on life. Julia Simpkins asks the question and cues the tracks.
Free event

As Boff describes it…

I’m at the fantastic Bolton Socialist Club doing a sort of Desert Island Discs thing. From West Side Story via the Pistols and Swan Arcade to Beans on Toast. That may not make much sense to you. I don’t know if I’m singing and playing anything there or just talking and telling jokes.

8.00pm at Bolton Socialist Club, Wood Street, Bolton

Wonder Women: Ladyfest MCR: Putting Women Up Front

This year Ladyfest hosts a specially created event for Wonder Women, exploring themes on visibility, body politics and identity in the context of the modern music industry.

This one-day event aims to encourage women to get involved in the music industry through practical sound production and music business workshops, plus an interactive lab from pioneers developing access for disabled musicians and promoters.

There’s a chance to hear Caro C – co-founder of Delia Derbyshire Day – deliver her talk ‘Visibility is Key’ on women in tech and electronic music. The musical programme rounds off with a panel discussion from key female figures in the music industry.

Wrapping up the day is the local body positive campaign ‘Free to be OK with Me’ – with workshops to encourage acceptance of our own bodies whatever their shape and with activist art shining a light on key body image issues.

13:00 Practical and interactive workshops

15:00 Caro C – Visibily is Key

15:30 Q&A Panel – Moderated by Abigail Ward

17:30 Body Positive Campaign – Free to be OK with me
