Partisan Day Festival #1 !

26th September 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 12:30 am

The first Partisan Day Festival!

πŸ‰ 🌻 πŸŒ΄πŸ¦‘ 🍍 πŸ„πŸ‡ 🐒 πŸ’‹ 🍭 🎨 πŸŽ‰

And this is a special one…

Partisan Day festival #1 ! is an event to launch a new & permanent fund within Partisan, the BIPOC fund. This fund will support rolling commission opportunities for BIPOC artists, musicians, DJs, facilitators & community projects. The fund will be steered by our BIPOC group of Partisan members, and supported by other working groups within Partisan like events & community outreach.

This will be a launching of the fund & act as a marker of work towards a space that serves the Manchester community better. We will be encouraging people to donate to the fund throughout the event.

The day will be kicking off at 3pm with a fantastic Mini Comic Book Tutorial from Cocopopkid! The rest of the day will bring you the work of local film artists, live acts & djs. See below for the full line-up!

Start a watch party with your pals and enjoy all that our fantastic line-up has to offer!
