Staffordshire Dance Collective is hosting a three-day residency with Anna Macdonald from Forecast Dance. This will be at SHOP in Stoke old town, on 30th, 31st August & 1st September 2010 (10am – 4pm). The residency…
“will begin to explore and develop material for a site-specific dance designed to be seen from a window. Participants will look at ways of working with site, playing with the peculiar romance involved in trying to communicate across a distance. The work will be fun and accessible encouraging people to work to their own strengths. The residency will culminate in an informal sharing of the work in progress on the final day.”
Cost: £30. Places are limited, so please contact Anna at: firstname.lastname@example.org or Clare at: email@example.com for further information and to book your place.
The public performances arising from the residency will be free, and the dancers will offer an informal sharing of the work in progress on Wednesday 1st September 2010.

Piccadilly Self Publishing Fair and Exhibition sounds like a good opportunity for self-publishers. The event happens in Manchester city centre on 3rd October 2010 (11am-6pm). The Fair’s title seems rather misleading, though — they’re not looking for traditional self-publishers or small print-on-demand publishers. What they say they want is more in the line of hand-made artists’ books and ‘zines…
“People who hand-make artist books, zines and other paper ephemera.”
If you would like a stall at the fair, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org with some info about your products and a link to your website. Application deadline: 10th September 2010.
