statement from FREE EDUCATION MCR

At FREE EDUCATION MANCHESTER we believe that education is a tool for building a fairer society. Education should be funded socially so that it can be managed democratically in order to empower people from all backgrounds to define what our education system looks like and learn in ways that best suit them. Free education would facilitate more creative, critical and practical approaches to learning that reflect the diverse needs of all people.This means funding schools, further education, youth centres, technical colleges, art colleges, community projects, universities and postgraduate study so that everyone has access to life-long learning.

This Thursday M20Collective is back at the Montpelliers Cafebar for the third time, bringing the best of Manchester’s creative men and women directly to you.

In this week’s instalment we bring you music and poetry to excite and relax, to make you think and make you tap your toes. Come join!

music

Kid Katharsis

Bringing on point delivery of his account of Manchester life. Soul infused with elements of hip hop, Katharsis continues to write songs and improve his live performance. I expect big things of this lad this year.

Sobi

She will captivate any room with her pitch perfect vocals. Humble and shy outwardly but Sobi has all the wow factor.  She released her first EP, Creatures in My Mind, last year. A must see.

Mento B (AKA Calypso George)

A Moss Side legend and calypso don. Charming, cheeky and everything in between.

poetry

Alex Webb

A key member of M20 Collective and thoughtful writer. Check out his piece God is Dead on our site.

Joel White

Compere for the evening. He’ll also be reading a selection of poems.

Creative Writing Society

Back again to bring you poems fresh from the pad.

M20 Collective presents: Urban Expression MCR

There’s something exciting about Manchester‘s Hip-Hop scene that does away with preconceptions about the UK’s inability to match up to the lyrical, rhythmic and melodic prowess of our friends across the pond. Multi-instrumental musical collectives like Mouse Outfit and Riot Jazz thrive on the diversity of their artists’ talents, and the exciting stuff that is borne of that difference: jazz drummers meet MCs meet brass sections meet rock guitarists meet velvet-voiced vocalists…the list just goes on. Audiences, too, are massively varied: at any given hip-hop night across the city you’ll find a huddle of listeners representing any background, any musical taste, any haircut you can imagine.

On the 13th March 2014 (that’s this Thursday), M20 Collective presents Urban Expression MCR at Kraak Gallery. For anyone who hasn’t been before, its just off Stevenson Square in Northern Quarter (there’ll be loads of signposting on the night). There’ll be artists of all kinds – hip-hop bands, live MCs, live graffiti artists, fashion designers, visual artists, spoken word poets, DJs and dancers – performing and exhibiting work, inspired by the different routes they’ve taken from the same urban root. Expect community vibes and a creative melting pot of ideas, and come meet some of Manchester’s best hidden talent!!

Here’s a sample of who and what’s to come…

on the stage

Music-wise, we’ve got hip-hop/jazz ensemble 8 Gold Rings [in the loop, I Love Live, Play Doubt] featuring a slew of locally sourced special guest MCs and vocalists. Bringing technical perfection and imaginative improvisations, you might have caught these guys at Free Verse, our Thursday jazz and poetry jam at Solomon Grundy…

One hell of a meaty treat, Beef, a hip hop genre melt-pot superband packs some serious punch with a double bass, a Congolese MC and a whole lotta musical fury…

On the decks, we’ve got Dan Nation of Mind on Fire collective taking us into the wee hours on a musical journey from jazz to trip hop to electronic, as well as garage, grime and hip-hop tunes from Big War of Generic Greeting in between performances.

There’ll be spoken word and dance performances in the intermissions. Chris Jam spreads positive thinking vibes with his words, whilst Michael O’Neill verses over live percussion accompanist Loner Bell, and you can look forward to shaking a leg with super talented dance crew Rhys Fagan and friends.

creative corner

Of course, it wouldn’t be an M20 night without an arts corner where you can get stuck in, see the artwork of others and flex your own creative muscles…

SHUNK and Delroy Do Not Bend will be creating live pen graffiti works, and positivity-focussed, art-based fashion from keep it bright. and artbyomni.
