For the Manchester Salon Weekend, part of the North West Visual Arts Open 2012 Castlefield Gallery has brought together Rogue Project Space, Blank Media Collective, the Artists Bonfire, the Lionel Dobie Project amongst many others for a series of short presentations on current activity and future plans of these artist led projects. The presentations will lead to an audience led Q&A and further discussion – most likely down the pub.
