Head to the Whitworth to celebrate the launch of Practising Place – a new publication which explores our relationship with places through a collection of creative projects and conversations between artists and academics. Featuring content developed for the book, this event includes a talk by Professor Mike Collier, Director of Art Editions North, a performance lecture about rural mythologies by artist Rebecca Chesney and art historian Rosemary Shirley, the premiere of a new short film set in Manchester Central Library by artist Magda Stawarska-Beavan, and a reading by artist Amelia Crouch and literary geographer Dr David Cooper of their essay, ‘The Cul-de-Sac in the Forest: The Supermodernity of Center Parcs’.

The launch will be followed by a drinks reception and the opportunity to purchase the book for the special price of £10 (RRP £15).
