Come and get a taste of what’s happening in the minds of some of the city’s leftfield innovators, as we bring Manchester’s visual arts community and thriving digital design sector together in a playful and informal setting.
Eight artists and designers will make lightning-quick presentations about a current project, experiment or source of inspiration – the ideal way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

After requests to include open slots, there will be two spaces made available at this event for anyone who wants to present a cool, interesting project they are working on. Just remember if you’re a designer please remember to focus on personal projects rather than pitching company work.
