Wonder Women Radical Manchester programme & Full of Noise Festival Radio Commission

by admin on March 3, 2013 · 1 comment

A diverse and bold programme of events are taking place in Manchester this month of March under the umbrella of a larger 5 year project called Wonder Women | Radical Manchester.

It was 100 years ago when a group of seemingly respectable women shocked Manchester art gallery by smashing dozens of artworks (including the one above). Artists and organisations across the city present a short season of events – 3rd March to 4th April – to reflect on its impact and explore where we are at today.

And so, as part of Manchester Art Gallery Thursday Lates programme, a series of events are taking place. Starting with Unconvention’s Pussy Riot focussed event with performers of music and spoken word. Then yours truly as part of the Delia Darlings team will present an experimental electronic music Delia Derbyshire focussed event. Do have a peek at these free events on offer (though booking advised).

And then there’s the wonderful little Full of Noise Festival in Barrow-in-Furness on the West peninsula of Cumbria which will take place in July. Leading up to the festival are artist residencies and a series of radio programmes – FONair micro-commissions.

And, yes it is about me (again)..On WED MARCH 20 at 13:00 I will present a show about the Delia Derbyshire Day 2013 project around theme of ’space’. And I’ve gone and committed to presenting it live – couldn’t resist the element of risk :)

Thanks for sharing the love about Wonder Women – and the FON festival looks brilliant – we’ll make sure we write something about it over on CT.
