Un-Convention will host a very special event at the Manchester School of Art this October, as part of the Manchester Weekender. The event will explore art, music, and innovation, celebrating the creativity and vibrancy of Manchester.

This is an interactive day of music and art that will give the audience a unique insight into the creative process. Over the course of the day a very special album will be recorded, produced and manufactured, with each of the 200 copies produced having it’s own individually designed sleeve.

The full process, from beginning to end will happen in front of a live audience, and there will be the opportunity for 200 of those attending to leave with their own completely unique copy of this multimedia experiment. To make a record in less than six hours is almost unheard of, and for each copy to have an individually designed sleeve seems impossible, but with the combined efforts of Manchester’s artists, designers and musicians we hope to prove otherwise.

Alongside the production of the music, and accompanying artworks, the event will bring together renowned professionals and academics from music, art, design, architecture, science and other industries to discuss creativity and provide the audience with a unique view of what it means, and how we can all be more creative.

On top of all that there will be music from Jo Duderridge (Travelling Band), Kirsty Almeida, and more tbc, plus a full set from incredible ‘Hope & Social‘ to close the event.

The event is open to everyone, and free to attend, and will be of particular interest to those interested in music, art and the wider creative industries.
