Monday Mural: Rise for music & performance for a better world @McrThinkRise @cheriejerrard

A nice mural by Cherie Jerrard from the Manchester School of Art (for this week’s Monday Mural meme) at Rise on Deansgate. It's one in a series of An Everyday Reportage from cafes and coffee houses across Europe.

where I spent Sunday afternoon at a useful workshop on” music and performance for a better world”

A weekend that was much about having fun in the sun, as well as more serious stuff.
Interesting meeting on Friday night with two of the NW Labour MEPs and others involved in the north west UK and European anti-racist campaigns.

Saturday morning at the pictures- special screening at HOME where we saw the award-winning short films of Sam Jones, Tim Sutton-Brand, Henry Barlow and Alfie Robinson of Gorilla Film Making Productions.

Supporting the Free Palestine and Parents Defending Education rallies in Piccadilly Gardens at lunch time then a sunny Saturday afternoon catching up with friends at Barca. Evening we saw the very good film Eye in the Sky (Aaron Paul, Helen Mirren)- scary stuff and moral dilemmas about drones and military.

Sunday included an amble along the River Irwell looking at greenery, giant hogweed and new buildings some of which were rather cool in design but with steep, unaffordable prices for the local population.
