Iv'e been trying not to tempt fate by talking to much about this....But my comrade Sophie Lee and I have just found out we have an artist residency at a place called Innospace in Manchester! Innospace is a kind of incubator for new businesses, it's in a really great city centre location (next to the North West Film Archive on Chorlton Street.)and has lot's of white walls that need sorting out...
We are based at the space for a year and we get lots of free business advice and unlimited printing, internet and phone calls in exchange for making some interesting art work for them.
I am pretty excited about this and have got loads of ideas...we are moving into the space in a couple of weeks...So I should start thinking about getting back to Manchester...

Sophie Lee and I are putting on the Piccadilly Self Publishing fair and exhibition in early October as part of the Free for Arts Festival, In Manchester. It's a brand new fair for self published wonders...On a lazy Sunday (3rd Oct.) Some of the intriguing and innovative hand bound beauties will continue to be shown right through to the following Friday (8th Oct.) This is all happening in the Piccadilly Place ( a lovely empty space inbetween Piccadilly Station and Piccadilly Gardens ) See the website for more info on taking part and visiting..... www.publishpiccadilly.blogspot.com
