7:00pm - 9:30pm
Local makers and creatives are to tell their stories in a fast-paced format known as PechaKucha: 20 slides with 20 seconds per slide.
Inspired by the start of the new academic term, the theme for the evening is lessons the speakers have learned over the course of their business. So if you've ever fancied learning how to be a calligraphist or wondered about whether we can or should love robots, or had aspirations of being a comedian, then this PechaKucha is for you.
The evening event will take place at the PLANT workshop space at NOMA. PLANT offers everyone the chance to learn a new skill through their wonderful array of free and cheap workshops. The only condition: whatever you do has to make Manchester greater.
On the night you'll get to play with ceramics and see PLANT NOMA'S drawing robot in action.
