M20 Pop-Up @ Antwerp Mansion: Integrated arts festival fundraiser

This Friday, M20 Collective hits Antwerp Mansion with a line-up of some of the best young creative talent that Manchester has to offer. There’ll be music, live art, spoken word, fashion, food, a raffle and loads more fun and games to enjoy – including, as ever at M20 events, chances to get involved and create something for yourself!

antwerp mansion

This integrated arts festival will be a massive celebration of all the amazing groups and individuals we’ve worked with over the last year and a bit. But it’s also a fundraiser to help M20 work with and develop creative community projects around the city. The funds raised from ticket sales will be put into the M20 Collective Community Fund – this will be used to support a whole array of different local community projects including the Fallowfield Secret Garden Project, M20 Collective’s own youth/collaboration focussed creative project and our goal of creating a creative hub in the M20 area. So come down, show support for your fellow creators and help us create something for our community!!

secret garden

This year, our theme is nature in an urban environment and when you get there you’ll find out loads about a number of exciting urban gardening projects happening in the city – all of which you can get involved in.

Buy tickets via Skiddle website [http://www.skiddle.com/whats-on/Manchester/Antwerp-Mansion/M20-Pop-Up-/12204196/]

So as we start the countdown, let us give you a taster of some of the amazing things that are going down on the night…

on the stage

The inimitable 8 Gold Rings have been bringing jazzy hip hop vibes and a mad roster of guest singers and MCs (including everyone from Skittles to Jenna G) to all kinds of stages across the city [In The Loop, I Love Live, Play Doubt]. They kill it every time.

Happy to welcome Kolo Tamam (‘everything’s cool’ in Arabic incase you were wondering). After last month’s appearance at Solomon Grundy’s, this will be their first gig as a full band! Chilled, electronic beats and beautiful male harmonies – Bon Iver meets Bonobo.

If you’ve recently swung by Indigo of a Wednesday night and been unable to stop dancing, chances are you’ve seen some of the Salutation Dub Collective clan jamming on stage. Formidable, whiskey-laced, bluesy vocals Tina Turner would be proud of and tight reggae-jazz-funk arrangements from the instrumentalists in the outfit.

on the decks

DJ Marquee will be spinning 50s rock n roll, funky soul, rhythm and blues and motown sounds whilst So Flute veteran DJ Yadava will be bringing us an eclectic mix of jazz, afrobeats and funk from around the world.

in the blue room – acoustic and spoken word

Get down early to make sure you get a space in the most intimate room of the festival! Acoustic vibes and guitar wizardry from sweet-voiced, mean strumming Andy Adams, while John Ainsworth conjures haunting and brilliantly technical melodies on a 12-string guitar.

Contact Theatre’s Young Identity crew Inna Voice are a spoken word collective of MCs, beatboxers, poets, singers and producers, and have shared a stage with the likes of fellow wordsmiths Kate Tempest and Amiri Baraka. Catch them performing live, and be sure to hear some performance poetry from the lovely Jo Po – check her out on ETV in an interview she did for M20.

fashion

The beautiful miss Zara Khalique will have a stall selling clothes and artwork from her positivity and creativity focussed label and lifestyle movement, keep it brightand get your hands on some one-off vintage pieces from the folks at Hot Mess Vintage. Messy Make Up will also be onsite giving tribal facepaint makeovers to help you get into the natural theme…
