come with us
a mixed media exhibition on creative activism on 23rd October - 26th November at The Basement Social Centre, 24 Lever Str, Manchester, England
Join us for a colourful explosion of political expression with:
The Clown Army: The Army that liberates with love not guns and humour not bullets.
Rhythms of Resistance (international):the activist anticapitalist transnational network, that uses samba as a form of political action.
The Art & Activism Caravan: a border crossing project which supported and connected local youth groups, their actions and campaigns with the power of Activist Art.
..and a fine selection of video activism and creative writing!
As part of the exhibition there will be:
a free samba workshop on 12th November at 6pm
a film night on 16th November at 7:30 (ish) pm
and a Clowning workshop (tbc)
..the irresistible rise of resistance through tactical frivolity!
Live the Carnival!
