Artist and weirdo Scottee is celebrating 10 years of making a mess, causing a fuss and getting ideas above his station with two new publications in collaboration with Live Art Development Agency. Scottee: I Made It is a swanky archive book documenting a decade of making it, and The Outsiders’ Handbook is a free survival guide for queer and trans* young people.
To mark the launch of the books, Scottee is joined by the grande dame of Manchester, David Hoyle. You are invited to their lock-in, an evening of being forced to listen to their thoughts on age, gender, queerness and survival.
Exclusive signed copies will be available on the night!
Since 2008 Scottee has been touring and making work in Manchester with performances at Queer Contact, Queer Up North and Orbit Festival. He has mentored local artists and brought critically-acclaimed works to the city, including The Worst of Scottee, Bravado and Fat Blokes. This event marks the start of Scottee becoming Associate Artist at Home.
Scottee: I Made It and The Outsiders’ Handbook have been supported as part of the Live Art Development Agency’s (LADA) contribution to the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP), an innovative four-year collaborative arts programme co funded by the European Union.
