We have officially launched the exhibition and project space at MCDC! Thanks to speakers, Sue Fletcher (Chair of the MCDC Board Of Directors), Councillor Mike Amesbury (Executive Member for Leisure & Culture, MCC) and Jane Beardsworth (Regional Director, Arts Council North West).
I ran a drop clay and metal stamping workshop with the help of my glamorous assistants, Fabian, Ginger and Hattie. There were Blue Lagoons and Tequila Sunrises inspired by the 1982 opening and live music music by Tom Thorp & English Electric, specially commissioned for the 30th anniversary of the Centre drawing on the history of the building itself, from it’s initial use as a Manchester’s fish market, to it’s modern day guise as MCDC.
I’m next in the space at MCDC on Saturday 5th May, 2-5pm if you would like to call in and tell me your story but you can pop in anytime and leave your memories with the exhibition, or leave them with the blog here.
