Insurrection – The Nerve Centre at FACT (Knowledge Lives Everywhere). 31 March – 12 April 2011.
After a hugely successful ‘Nerve Centre’ that took place in the summer of 2010, when the former Rapid Hardware paint shop on Renshaw Street was taken over by hundreds of local people. The Nerve Centre now moves into the FACT (Wood Street) for two weeks only.
Visitors can expect another explosive series of art, film, music, poetry and of course discussion. The title of the event is ‘INSURRECTION’. Art and discussion will follow the theme of the ConDem cuts and how we as the people of Liverpool can resist them.
The events and exhibition starts on Thursday 31st March and runs until Tuesday 12th April.
Darren Guy part of the Nerve Centre Collective says, ‘ We want the people of Liverpool, who are concerned about what is going in our society to come along and get involved. The aim of the Nerve centre is to provide a space and a voice to those who never get a chance’
The coming week offers a whole range of exciting arts, culture and discussion. The Nerve Centre is bringing together artists, musicians and community activists across the city, who are actively improving their communities.
In collaboration with Philosophy in Pubs, the Windows Project, Next To Nowhere Social Centre, How, Why, DIY and many other organisations and individuals.
There will be:
Displays from Nerve artists and local campaigns. Workshops on Flashmobs, Open Source, Benefits and ‘Setting up your own Arts Centre’. Music and drama with local artists and theatre groups. Discussions with Philosophy in Pubs (PiPs). Poetry from Windows and a Children’s Corner.
