Forward thinking multi-arts festival FutureEverything launched this Wednesday and runs until Saturday 19 May. Last week we pinpointed some of the music highlights and this week Ian Pennington looks at a few of its standout events from elsewhere in the arts.
Ongoing across the whole festival and beyond is the FutureEverybody Exhibitionat the Museum of Science and Industry. The theme of the exhibition centres around celebrations for the Mass Observation Movement and the UN International Year of Co-operatives, which have both inspired the specially assembled roster of artists to explore ideas around the nature of collective action. The work is viewable from now until 10 June.
The annual Victoria Baths Fanzine Convention returns for its second year on Saturday 19 May, bringing together a range of affiliated concepts and groups, from filmmakers to bloggers via talks on subjects such as UK feminist fanzines and political counterculture publication City Fun. Zine Libraries from across the North of England will have a presence at stalls in the building.
The Victoria Baths space will also house FutureEverything’s Handmade, which shares a passion for all things DIY, but is less specifically inclined towards media and publication. They welcome workshops hosted by Manchester Craft and Design Centre, the Open Design Research Group, Co-operative Printing and FAB*Manchester.
