>>==========================================================

>>

>>Loitering With Intent (working title)

>> Call for Submissions

>>

>>We are delighted that between July-September 2016 The LRM (Loiterers

>>Resistance Movement) will be curating an exhibition in the community

>>gallery of The People¹s History Museum. We want its content to be

>>exciting, inspiring and diverse, reflecting the nature of

>>psychogeography, and so we are inviting applications from anyone who

>>wishes to take part.

>>

>>We are looking for original art work and archive material that explores

>>any of these themes:

>>€ Psychogeography (however you choose to define it)

>>€ Creative walking, walking art and walking as a cultural or political

>>practice

>>€ Public / private space and the right to the city

>>€ DIY, creative, activist and other interesting maps and map making

>>€ The LRM (Loiterers Resistance Movement) and our events

>>€ Radical, emotional and hidden histories, especially of or linked to

>> Manchester € The Situationist International and their legacy

>>€ Critical geographical responses to urban issues and inequalities such

>>as surveillance, gentrification, homogenisation etc.

>>

>>Any kind of art or artefact is welcome ­ photos, prints, painting,

>>drawing, film, audio, sculpture etc. We also have some capacity to

>>include events, performances and walks etc. There will be an accompanying

>>blog and possibly other literature so we welcome writers who wish to

>>contribute as well.

>>

>>We are very open to new ideas so please do get in touch.

>>

>>Things to consider:

>>

>>The Peoples History Museum is family friendly and all work must be

>>suitable for a wide audience. There are also some logistical restrictions

>>due to the nature of the space, more information about this will be

>>provided where relevant.

>>

>>The majority of the material in the exhibition will be focused on Greater

>>Manchester and the North West but we hope to include some work from

>>farther afield.

>>

>>You do not have to be a professional artist, and applications from groups

>>/ collectives are also welcome.

>>

>>Previous involvement with The LRM isn¹t essential, but we envisage the

>>majority of work featured will have some link, however tenuous. This can

>>include attending, or reacting to, any of our walks or other events or

>>contributing to an online conversation via facebook or twitter.

>>

>>The LRM is a not-for-profit collective and everyone gives their time for

>>free so we are unable to pay anyone to exhibit. However, we don¹t want

>>anyone to be out of pocket or unable to contribute because of expenses so

>>if you need any resources to participate (eg transporting work to the

>>exhibition or to meet access requirements) please let us know and we will

>>do our best to help. We currently have a small budget from previous

>>fundraising and will actively seek more if necessary. Please don¹t spend

>>any money on this application without checking with us first.

>>

>>Please be aware we have limited space so decisions will be made by a

>>panel. We will consider the quality, intent, originality and relevance of

>>every application as well as how it fits within the overall exhibition.

>>We will let applicants know our decision as soon as possible after the

>>closing date.

>>

>>Background Information

>>

>>The LRM (Loiterers Resistance Movement) is a Manchester based collective

>>of artists and activists interested in psychogeography, public space and

>>the hidden stories of the city. Formed in 2006 we still can¹t agree on

>>what psychogeography means but we all like plants growing out of the side

>>of buildings, looking at things from new angles, radical history,

>>drinking tea and getting lost. We believe there is magick in the

>>Mancunian rain. Our city is wonderful and made for more than shopping. We

>>want to reclaim it for play and revolutionary funŠ. On the first Sunday

>>of every month we go for a wander of some sort. These derives, or drifts,

>>help decode the palimpsest of the streets, uncover power structures and

>>discover the extraordinary in the mundane. We also organise occasional

>>festivals, exhibitions and other random shenanigans. These have included

>>building cake maps, playing CCTV bingo, tracing lost rivers and

>>collaborating on projects like Manchester¹s Modernist Heroines. Our

>>events are always free and open to everyone.

>>

>>The People¹s History Museum in Manchester is the national museum of

>>democracy. They aim to engage, inspire and inform diverse audiences by

>>showing ŒThere have always been ideas worth fighting for¹. This

>>exhibition will take place in The Engine Hall

>>
