Patrick T Davies: Cesspit Assessment

Patrick T. Davies is a spoken word artist and musician based in Manchester. Earlier this year he released his debut EP, Terrible Twenties, a poetic trip through the turbulent British landscape of the current day combined with some of his own, more insular, concerns.

But from despondency and disquiet must come change. With this in mind, the gallery’s Get Together and Get Things Done space will provide the back-drop for a unique one-off performance.

To tie in with the gallery’s exhibition to mark the bicentenary of the Peterloo Massacre and a century of change through socio-political dissent, Davies will perform a special one-man show entitled Cesspit Assessment – an arsenal of visceral spoken word set to a soundtrack of catchy electronica, accompanied by the space’s wealth of artistic intrigue.

Become a teacher at The School of Integration

The School of Integration will be a new commission from Tania Bruguera, a Cuban performance and installation artist.  Through this new artwork, Tania is keen to explore why integration is always the responsibility of the immigrant. She wants to invert this status quo, asking audiences instead to integrate with the immigrant. Through this powerful, provocative and inspiring new work she hopes to draw Manchester nearer to those who’ve made this city their home, inviting us to discover and embrace the diversity in our midst.

We are looking for up to 30 people or “teachers” who have made Greater Manchester their home originally from other countries around the world. The “teachers” will provide free classes on a curriculum that includes languages, culture, ethics, politics, economics and many other forms of knowledge. These are not only instructional lessons, but something more personal and vivid. Every teacher will pass on his or her own experiences to anyone interested in developing new skills – resulting in a new kind of shared learning experience.

The School of Integration is commissioned and produced by Manchester International Festival and Manchester Art Gallery.
