This weekend at FACT
8 April 2011
Insurrection at FACT is Nerve Magazine's take over of Gallery 2 as part of Knowledge Lives Everywhere. You may have caught a Nerve Centre before in their take over of the old Rapid on Renshaw Street last summer but if not, now is your chance to get involved and be part of the second Nerve Centre.
The music will last all weekend, with Jo Bywater performing lyrical poetry at 1.00pm Saturday followed by singer Jazamin Sinclair at 1.30pm. Then on Sunday at 2.30pm, Dave Mason, formally gutarist with The Most Terrifying Thing, will be performing his solo work.
If you're interested in speaking your mind, or just listening to others, debates and discussions include "Benefits- how the ConDem cuts will affect you" at 11.30am tomorrow. Then later on at 4.00pm, Barry Kushner's presentation, "Coalition of Resistance", will ask is there an economic crisis?
For those into their tech, from 3.00pm - 5.00pm on Sunday The Nerve Centre will be looking at using "open source" software, dealing with practical issues such as what Linux is and how to use it.
If you're feeling the affects of a weekend at the races, or just want some chill out time to contemplate The Nerve Centre, there will be massage sessions at 2.00pm on the Sunday.
Insurrection will go on until Tuesday 12 April. The next week in Gallery 2 will be led by Freehand, FACT's young people's programme.
