Visitors to Level 3 at 36 Lime Street were met with some stirring music and a well decorated corridor courtesy of the Coalition of Resistance.
Encouraged to leave messages, ideas and suggestions for Michael Gove, George Osborne, Nick Clegg and Phillip Green, there was no stopping the enthusiasm and inspiring comments. I plan to transform these into an artist’s book some time in the future.
Discussions centred around job losses and pensions, with every visitor having some personal experience of loosing a job or knowing someone very close. Ideas and discussions on how to tackle the austerity measures, looked to Obama (for some visitors), taxing the rich was high on the list and nationalising the banks.
The Late Shows continue tonight at 36 Lime Street with a FREE prize draw to visitors and the chance to win some amazing and beautiful art works.
I’ll be at The Lit & Phil with The Book Apothecary and a fantastic team of volunteers, there are drop in workshops with writers Stevie Ronnie and Susannah Pickering. I’ll be offering a drop in session making folded books in a box.
The evening kicks of at 7pm. Next door the Mining Institute has floor to ceiling art work by a series of artists, definitely worth a look!
