Flyer and A-Void

4 06 2008



The flyer for the TRIP festival, including details of the art and interventions, is now available to download here.  We are very nearly there on the programme for the conference aspect of the event (we promise!)

As part of TRIP, Void International are organising a project entitled A-void. This project invites you to find the path of most surveillance and the path of least surveillance from your place of residence to the conference venue, and to document your journey in any media and forms that you find suitable. You are also invited to find the place of most surveillance and the place of least surveillance in Manchester, and to map and document them. Submissions welcome online – here or send to – or at the event, where a post-box will be available. Void International will be presenting and discussing the findings on the Saturday of TRIP.

Get lost with us…

6 03 2008

Affiliated with and running parallel to TRIP… 

The LRM are delighted to announce Manchester‘s second international psychogeography festival this May and June – and we’d like you to get involved….

We need loiterers and urban explorers, artists of all kinds, walkers, talkers, map makers, historians, situationists, space invaders, dreamers, mischief makers and more – anyone who is interested in looking at Manchester in a different way is welcome to join us.

We are planning a programme of events including visual art and urban interventions so we’re looking for people who want to create a spectacle, lead an exploration, go for a wander, play a game, make art, start a debate or have fun getting lost in the city.

Please come with us on our mission to remap Manchester. Our city is for more than shopping; we want to take psychogeography onto the streets and have some fun.  Help us reclaim Manchester for those who love the place and want to loiter here.

The LRM (Loiterers Resistance Movement) is an open collective of artists and activists who can’t really agree on what psychogeography means but we like DIY maps and plants growing out of the side of buildings. Gentrification makes us sad but we believe our city is wonderful. We’ve been involved in various shenanigans and every first Sunday of the month we go for some sort of walk.

The Royal Exchange Theatre will be hosting our exhibition from 26th May – 28th June and there will be miscellaneous activities across the city. The LRM have some (limited) resources and practical support to help you make your idea a reality. 

To get involved please email or contact The LRM on 07974929589  as soon as possible and definitely before April 1st.
