Re/Place will be back as Re/Place(d) in the summer 2017, as part of Didsbury Arts Festival. Watch this space for more!
We’re back, with four of the original team creating Re/Place(d) for Didsbury Arts Festival 2017. Sarah Butler, Sarah-Clare Conlon, David Gaffney and Nicholas Royle will be joined by Elizabeth Baines and Adrian Slatcher for an exploration of people and places, in line with the festival theme of “roots”.

Re/Place(d) – stories that are right up your street
Always wanted to go behind the scenes in Longford Cinema or Cosgrove Hall? Ever wondered what the Sedge Lynn used to be or why Chorltonville is unique? Never knew about the Chorlton Park paddling pool or what happened to the Chorlton Green church whose graveyard and lych gate still remain? As part of Chorlton Arts Festival 2015, six critically acclaimed and award-winning writers each sharing an interest in psychogeography and urban exploration have penned pieces about ghost places and the re-appropriation of spaces. The result is Re/Place – stories that are right up your street. Sarah Butler, Sarah-Clare Conlon, Claire Dean, Kate Feld, David Gaffney and Nicholas Royle will perform their site-specific short stories and present postcards from the past at this special event, which takes place at Proof in Chorlton on Wednesday 20 May 2015 at 7.30pm. Free entry. Supported by Arts Council England.
