John Brady Interview in NW Enquirer

Kay Carson of The North West Enquirer should be congratulated for first of all managing to get through to John Brady on the phone and then for writing a nice article giving a quick overview of some of the Independents events.

Its quite a good paper and I’m not just saying that because it often mentions the artinliverpool blog and has us listed in their recommended blogs section

PREPARATION for the Independents Biennial Liverpool 2006 has been frenetic. At least, that was the feeling while speaking on the phone with John Brady, its creative facilitator – and, when he told me he had received more than 200 portfolios, I reckoned my hunch was right.

  1. HI Ian

    Good to get a mention but this was very old info used for the tender bid. I assume the residents felt too intimidated by the loss of their homes to get involved at the level of knitting clubs and coffee mornings. Instead we have a rich batch of recordings not of social history, well I suppose it is in a way, but in an anonymous honest telling of the situation. Door to door interviews and filming. Very political, emotional and scandelous.
    The house is the artists response to working with the people, HMRI, The developer, The Consultant, The Housing Association, Pro Demolition groups, Anti demolition groups, the Council and the Office.
    Come along and see the film!
    and have a cup of coffee.
    See you soon
    ps Don’t miss the Ringo room
