We’re just pulling together the final details of the day of talks and films responding to the exhibition on Saturday 4 December from 11.00am.
Steve Milllington’s an expert on the history of Hulme and will show us how it’s existed in its several incarnations – and ask questions about the ways in which it’s been given its character by the people who live there, and reshaped by Regeneration.
The brilliant Romuald Hazoume will be flying in specially from Benin to be with us, and will be in conversation with Elisabeth Lalouschek from October Gallery.
We’ll be showing “The Genome Chronicles” John Akomfrah’s lyrical film about the artist Donal Rodney.
John McAuliffe, poet and Co-Director of Manchester University’s Centre for Creative Writing, will read poems about Ireland, conflict and ruins.
